Mexican Pop : The return of OV7


The news is out & it’s official, OV7 is making a comeback! Some rumor that not everyone will be back, & that Kalimba(ex member turned solo artist) will not be part of the comeback, while other sources say that he indeed has expressed the desire to preform once more with his former group.  Who is OV7? During an era that can be described as the reign of boy bands &  pop princesses OV7 was a coed pop group that enjoyed much popularity in Mexico.  The band gets it’s name from the musical “Grease” OV7 stands for = Onda Vaselina 7 which would translate to something like = Grease Vibe 7.  The group says about it’s comeback:  That their break up was premature, and they want to recover things lost, because the group was dissolved when they still had a lot to give.  They feel that no one with their style or vibe is on the scene at the moment and they want to bring back just that.  Die hard fans are besides themselves as a result of  the comeback news, it’s like a piece of their youth is retrived, and revived.

OV7 The Comeback  :Behind The Scenes

An invitation from the guys to be part of the comeback

One of OV7’s top hits “Sha ba da ba da” Lmao ahhh the 90’s.  I remember this song from when I took a trip to Mexico when I was like 14- 15,  it was big.  I remember watching the video on MTV at my aunt’s house, and dancing in front of the television.

Mexican Artist of the Day


It’s Sunday, time to kick back and relax. Well, what can be more relaxing than admiring beautiful art?  I actually  found out about our featured artist through a tweet by Guillermo “Memo” Ochoa (Mexican League, team America/ El Tri  soccer star).  Diego Anaya is a talent native to Mexico City , one who can check pro soccer player & gifted artist off his “Things I want to become” list.  Just to get an idea of what kind of flavor his paintings have, his inspirations growing up included artists like Modigliani, Dali, and Warhol to name a few. Diego eventually got the chance to have artist Guillermo Canseco take him under his wing.  Thanks to the opportunity of being able study under this  artistic professional of 30 years Diego was able to exhibit and sell his work in several parts Mexico and a few major cities in the U.S.

I really wish I could post a picture of his work, but I’m not quite sure how that works, with all the copy write stuff. I’m not sure if I’d be ok to post something so long as I link it back. =S  Just  follow the links guys, his work is really cool.  So far my fav piece is “Thinking about sex & love” it evokes vibrant emotions. Well enjoyness much as always & let’s not forget to spread the word and support Mexican talent whenever possible =D
