PAQUITA LA DEL BARRIO

Paquita La Del Barrio

Paquita la del Barrio realiza canciones del género ranchero y otros estilos tradicionales mexicanos. Sus temas por lo general son de despecho y en contra de la cultura machista, motivo por el cual se ha hecho tan popular y famosa especialmente con el público femenino. En su show, la frase "¿Me estas oyendo inútil?" es la que la caracteriza y la cual usa como tipo de aversión a los varones para bromear. Muchos de sus discos y canciones son parte del repertorio de rocolas en clubs y cantinas de México. Una de sus canciones muy conocidas es "Rata de dos patas" en la cual usa la metáfora de la rata para compararla a los caballeros. Muchos de sus admiradores, particularmente los que radican fuera de México, aprecian la manera tan peculiar de interpretación musical.

Paquita la del Barrio (“Franny from the neighborhood”) performs rancheras and other Mexican musical styles. Her songs usually take a stance against Mexico's sexist male culture. This has made her popular among female audiences. Paquita’s signature phrase, with which she often teases male spectators in her shows, is “¿Me estás oyendo, inútil?”  ("Are you listening to me, you good-for-nothing?").  Many of her albums and songs are jukebox staples in Mexican clubs and cantinas. One of her best known songs is Rata de dos patas (“Two-legged rat”), in which she uses a rat as a metaphor for a man. Many admirers, particularly outside Mexico, also appreciate Paquita for her camp value.

An Evening with Robin Trower

An Evening with Robin Trower

Robin Trower started his recording career in the band The Paramounts, but truly surfaced on rock 'n' roll's radar in 1967 with Procol Harum. He completed five albums and many tours with them before breaking away for a solo career in 1971.

Though modelled after the power-trio blueprint of Cream and Taste, as well as the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Trower's atmospheric, effect-laden Stratocastering has done wonders to set him apart and help him to make a mark in the world of Rock 'N' roll. Along with the vocal talents of James Dewar, The Robin Trower Band proves to be a musical powerhouse.

Robin's distinctive style of playing retained a sizeable live following in the United States. A brief reunion with Procol Harum in the 90's led to a reassessment of his career's direction, which had grown more sporadic and unsure in the 80's. He now aims to fulfil himself musically by, as he put it, "making albums for my own heart".

Trower was quoted as having said that the greatest joy of having his own label was that he didn't have to make music to please some guy behind a desk.

After the album '20th Century Blues' appeared in 1994, Robin decided to take on a share of the lead vocals, stating that "when you write songs, you're always gonna get a twist put onto them by whoever sings them. When you sing it yourself, it tends to come out how you heard it in your head."

Trower went on to release many more albums over the years, such as 1997's 'Someday Blues', which netted him a two album partnership with Roxy Music's Bryan Ferry, and 2000's 'Go My Way', a 'slightly spacey' kind of blues album that Trower rated highly. 2012's "Roots and Branches" was praised as a revelation and one of Robin's finest indie releases at the time, and in October/November of 2014, after a long absence, he returned to the stage for a six week tour with Richard Watts and Chris Taggart.

In February of 2015, Robin Trower released his latest album, 'Something's About to Change', proving that he is a world-class musician that is still very much at the top of his game. The album is palpably influenced by Trower's deep love of post-war U.S. blues, and its personal themes and visceral music mean that it will resonate with many generations.
