Mexican singer, guitarist and songwriter Pancho Barraza is known for a romantic repertoire that combines musical traditions of his native Mexico with heartfelt ballads, Colombian cumbia, canción ranchera, salsa and more.
Pancho Barraza’s talents first emerged with his work as part of the popular band Los Recoditos, and later as a solo artist with the release of his debut album, 1995’s best-selling Mis Canciones De Amor. Since then, Barraza has produced a long list of hits – including “Musica Romantica,” “Mis Ilusiones,” “Donde Andará,” “Historia de un Amor,” “Los Amantes,” “Nuestro Amor,” and “Te Esperaré” – which have earned him fans across generations.
After an eight-year absence from the world of music, Barraza recently returned stronger than ever with his new record label, RB Music, and his latest album, El Poeta del Amor, which contains the single "Yo Estaba Solo," already a major hit in both Mexico and the United States.
