Boleros De Noche is curated by Ánimo Production's founder Roberto Carlos, a young Los Angeles-based artist/promoter who is committed to bolero music and its traditions. The production of Boleros De Noche that is coming to the Harris Center is a celebration of boleros from Mexico and will feature the Mexican bolero icons Los Panchos and the Mexican-American Latin Grammy nominees Trio Ellas. Evoking the bohemian spirit of boleros, this magical summer evening will be filled with nostalgia and love.
The quintessential Latin trio romántico internationally renowned for their boleros, Los Panchos formed in New York City in 1944 by Mexicans Alfredo "El Güero" Gil and Chucho Navarro, and Puerto Rican Hernando Avilés. The trio's innovative format, which became a standard of the genre, features three voices and three guitars, as well as Gil's distinctive use of the Mexican requinto guitar for all the lead parts.
Los Panchos is one of the most famous Latin American musical acts of the 20th century. They have sold millions of records and appeared in countless films. Some of their finest recordings were made in collaboration with female vocalists, notably American singer Eydie Gorme, but also Argentinians Estela Raval and María Martha Serra Lima.
The current incarnation of Trio Los Panchos is now led by Gabriel "Gaby" Vargas Aguilar, the adopted son of original member Alfredo Gil, who plays requinto guitar (like his father) and is keeping their classic repertoire alive.
