Country France
Genre Bolero

Los Paquitos are a bolero band in a world conquered by reggaeton.

Broadcaster and journalist Jordi Batalle unraveled the enigmas of the band born in French territory in RFI. Their trajectory in the music studios has taken them to Europe, from where they intend to recover a genre that triumphed between the 40s and 70s of the last century on both sides of the continent.

Mexican tenor Carlos Montenegro and Chilean actor Andrés Espinoza met in France, where tenors are still booming, and created Los Paquitos. This is their second year revisiting the romantic genre in a modern way.

Carlos Montenegro has been a Mexican tenor who sang in the Symphonic Choir of the State of Mexico as first tenor after studying mezzosoprano at the University of Sonora and baritone with Roberto Bañuelas at the UNAM. For the last four years he has been studying soprano with Delphine Guevar at Bonigny and has collaborated with artists such as Armando Manzanero.

Andres Espinoza weaved a friendship with Carlos Montenegro that led to a project of electronic music and cumbia. They soon discovered that they both liked boleros and that it was a generational presence of their grandparents in both Mexico and Chile: "Latinos don't live by reggaeton alone".

They also consider that there is a great tradition of cinema that deals with the image of boleros.

Espinoza began his theater studies in Santiago de Chile following the methodology of Frenchman Jacques Lecoq, which ended up taking him to Paris in 2011. When asked about the musical genre, he reveals his postmodern self-consciousness by distancing himself from the original macho lyrics.
