About Paquita la del Barrio

Francisca Viveros Barradas would be born in 1947 on April 2 in the city of Alto Lucero, Veracruz. Her stage name is Paquita la del Barrio, which translates to "Paquita from the neighborhood" in English. In 1970, when she was in her early twenties, Francisca Viveros Barrados would move to Mexico City and would assume an empowered stage presence that would make her an instant hit. Singing in the styles of rancheras and other Mexican music, Paquita's musical career would be defined by her firm resistance to sexism in Mexico's male culture. Not surprisingly, this stance gained her huge popularity among female audiences. Although she would not have a great deal of commercial success in record sales at the beginning of her career, her vibrant personality would guarantee her audiences' continued fascination in the local music scene. By now, Paquita's long and shining career has earned her a regular place among Mexican cantinas and clubs on their jukeboxes.

Paquita la del Barrio has been twice married. Her first union was terminated upon the discovery of infidelity on the part of her husband. Her second marriage would last for thirty-one years, and would end in 2004 when her husband unfortunately passed away.


Previous Hits

Paquita la del Barrio's fame will be as eternal as her sassy, assertive personality and live stage performances. Her confident heckling of men and macho attitudes have made her an indentured favorite in her native Mexico and around the world. One of the reasons for her success outside of her native country is also her joyous campiness.

A shining example of her exciting musical style is perhaps best showcased with her 2001 release Taco Placero. This stylish, passionate, and over-the-top album exemplifies Paquita la del Barrio's strident and stringent answer to the macho attitude of mariachi bands and certain benighted Mexican males. This album focusses on the deeply-felt female perspective on relationships, and gives girlfriends everywhere a fresh and funny perspective on their role. Perhaps her best-loved song is "Rata de dos patas," which translates to "two-legged rat" in English and is a truly hilarious ditty from Taco Placero. The rat is, of course, a metaphor for a man, and "Rata de dos patas" along with "Me Voy, Me Voy," "Taco Placero," "Ma Segunda Casa", and countless other Paquita la del Barrio tunes are favorites in cantinas and jukeboxes all over Mexico.

Some of her notable hit performances include a duet with vocalist Ricardo Arjona on Arjona's 2008 album 5to Piso for the song "Ni Tu Ni Yo." She has also performed at the Spanish rendition of We Are The World, entitled Somos El Mundo, as well participating in the Premios Lo Nuestro, the famous Latin music awards show.


Trivia

Paquita la del Barrio is well-known for her trademark phrase which she throws at male members in the audience: "¿Me estás oyendo, inútil?" In English, this translates as a demand that the unlucky "good-for-nothing" ensure that he is listening to the indomitable Paquita.
