Paquita La Del Barrio

On the Grandstand Stage

Paquita la del Barrio (born Francisca Viveros Barradas) became a celebrity after she decided to move from her native Veracruz to Mexico City in 1970. Her live performances, mainly based on feminist songs with lyrics that are aggressive toward macho attitudes, seduced followers from all around the country. Even when her first records didn’t achieve a top-selling status, Paquita la del Barrio became one of the most interesting personalities.
