With 21 years of experience and eight albums including a DVD, Panteón Rococó is the most emblematic ska-fusion group in Mexico. The band formed in 1995, having as a background the Zapatista uprising which inspire the members on their political stand and influence their songs. The band is known for their fusion of many music genres, including ska, punk and rock, which give them a unique sound and deliver concerts that remain full with the same energy and enthusiasm as when they started, making every performance unforgettable.
They have performed in major music festivals in Mexico and around the world. Their international tours have taken them to travel around Europe, United States, Canada and South America, allowing them to spread their music to every corner of the map. Almost a year and a half after celebrating their great XX years of uninterrupted trajectory concert and the beginning of their “Y Queremos Más” [And We Want More] Anniversary Tour, Panteón Rococó, captured on a recorded DVD+CD the festivity in the ARENA CDMX on July 4th, 2015 and achieved a record attendance of more than 22,000 fans.
