Paquita la del Barrio (“Franny from the neighborhood”) returns!

This Mexican singer of rancheras and other Mexican styles uses her songs to take a stance against Mexico’s sexist male culture, which not surprisingly has made her popular among female audiences (although men love her, too).

Paquita’s signature phrase, with which she often teases male spectators in her shows, is “¿Me estás oyendo, inútil?” (“Are you listening to me, you good-for-nothing?”). Many of her albums and songs are jukebox staples in Mexican clubs and cantinas. One of her best known songs is Rata de dos patas (“Two-legged rat”), in which she uses a rat as a metaphor for a man. Many admirers, particularly outside Mexico, also appreciate Paquita for her camp value.
