Vilma Palma e Vampiros is an Argentine Neo Folk rock band from Rosario. They came to prominence in 1992 after the release of the hits Bye, Bye and La Pachanga.
Translated as Vilma Palma and Vampires, the name was taken from a graffiti written over the metallic shutters of a closed furniture store by its former employees, calling out the manager: "Vilma Palma e Hijos Vampiros de los Obreros" (Vilma Palma and Children, Vampires of the Workers). With time, the graffiti vanished until the words "Vilma Palma e Vampiros" remained by 1991.
This explanation makes for the grammatical error in the name: e is used instead of y (as and) only when followed by a word starting with i- or hi-.

Los Rodríguez were a rock band composed of two Argentines, two Spaniards and one Puerto Rican that played during the 1990s.
The group was born in 1991 when Ariel Rot and Julián Infante (members of the famous group Tequila) joined Andrés Calamaro, from the band Los Abuelos de la Nada, and Germán Vilella. They started touring around small clubs in Madrid.
In 1991 their first album, Buena Suerte, was released .
But it was their 1993 album Sin Documentos that brought the group to the hit parade. With songs as Dulce condena, Sin documentos, Mi rock perdido, and Me estás atrapando otra vez.
The next album, 1995's Palabras más, palabras menos, was another success. The album contains Mucho Mejor (with Coque Malla), Todavía una canción de amor (with lyrics by Joaquín Sabina, whom they toured with that year) and Milonga del marinero y el capitán.
In 1997 they released Hasta luego, a compilation album, and went on tour. The band broke apart due to economic conflicts.
Julian Infante was diagnosed with HIV/AIDS and died on 4 December 2000 in a clinic in Madrid.
On 29 November 2007, Daniel Zamora (the last bass guitar player of the band) committed suicide in his hometown Palafrugell.
Their music is a fusion of different styles as flamenco, rumba, bolero, ranchera, milonga, funk, blues.
Despite their short career, their great success inspired a revolution in the Spanish pop music market, returning attention to groups that sing in Spanish (and bands with Spanish roots).
