Who: The internationally acclaimed, Los Panchos, is coming to Gilroy. En route from
Mexico City, this legendary trio of romantic bolero music will be performing for
two days only, a benefit concert for GavTV Productions.
Los Panchos made the sound of the bolero familiar to romantics worldwide.
Beginning in 1944, their classically-fingered guitar ballads, honeyed, warm
harmony vocals and relaxed, sensual style was an updated version of the
traditional trio music of central Mexico; their smooth sound gave the genre a new
style and life. Emotional interpretations of "Besame Mucho," "Quizas, Quizas,
Quizas," and "Sin Ti" propelled them into international fame.
To add to their unique sound, the group made use of the "requinto," a small-sized guitar
invented by Los Panchos founding member Alfredo Gil. The "requinto" became a standard instrument for all trios, typically made up of three guitars and voice
harmonies. 2500 songs and 200 albums later Los Panchos continues to delight
audiences of all ages. These timeless classics have become a Mexican treasure
in the people's hearts. Los Panchos is presently formed by Gabi Vargas
(director), Jaime Ariel Miranda, and Taurino Aguilar who continue a legacy born
over 65 years ago.
