Panteon Rococo Conquering New Horizons In 2017

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) With a career spanning more than 20 years, Panteón Rococó, is without doubt an eminent band of the Latin Ska movement and presently one of the biggest drawing acts hailing from Mexico. The 11 piece group is preparing to kick off 2017 with recently announced events that include a first time performance at the Cosquín Rock Festival of Córdoba, Argentina, their return to Los Angeles to headline once again the Skanking Reggae Fest, and their anticipated debut at the SXSW International Music Festival in Austin for two important performances.

The group, which began its career in 1995 in the midst of the Zapatista movement in Mexico and from it's roots embraced a social and activist consciousness, began the year by accepting the invitation of SXSW to deliver 2 concerts and to attend several promotional events in Austin, Texas. Panteón Rococó's first performance is scheduled at the SXSW Outdoor Stage at Lady Bird Lake, a free event open to the public co-headlining with Residente from band Calle 13 and other surprise artist on Thursday, March 16. The band's second show will be presented by Kichink On at the Parish, on Friday, March 17.

2016 was a significant year for Panteón Rococó as they continued their trek in celebrating a career of two decades by delivering critically acclaimed performances at big arenas and music festivals throughout Mexico. It was the year they released their 8th album "XX Years", a CD/DVD (Sony Music) recorded live at the sold out 20th Anniversary Concert at the CDMX Arena in front of more than 23,000 attendees. Within weeks of its launch the album achieved Gold status for its sales in Mexico.
