A Universal Music Group label drew attention to a "milestone" in Latin music on Friday, highlighting the fifth straight sellout last weekend for  an annual concert in Los Angeles featuring artists from the "forbidden" and "applauded" corrido genre.

Universal Music Latin Entertainment-GTS, UMLE's booking and management division, noted Friday that last weekend's "La Invasion del Corrido V" at the Gibson Amiptheatre, which seats over 6,000, sold out ten days in advance.

"Once again last weekend's accomplishment represented a milestone feat in the Latin music world that corridos may be forbidden for some and applauded by others," Universal Musica said in a statement.

The concert organizers were UMLE-GTS, Orjuela Entertainment Inc, and local stations La Que Buena 105.5 & 94.3 FFM. The stations target Hispanics ages 18-34 with regional Mexican music

Among the participants in the three hour event were Alfredo Olivas,  Los Canelos De Durango, Arley Perez, Mario 'El Cachorro'delgado, Martin Castillo, Jesus Ojeda, Regido, Los Juniors De Culiacan And Komando Negro.
