DID YOU KNOW?
Nena Daconte Is a Spanish pop group. Its members include the singer from Madrid, Mai Meneses, and the musician from Barcelona, Kim Fanlo. The band takes its name from a character in the short story "The Trail Of Your Blood On The Snow", by Gabriel García Márquez.
Mai Meneses first found fame in 2002 when she entered the second series of the Spanish reality TV show Operación Triunfo. However, in the first week, she was put up for eviction against the overall winner, Ainhoa, and was voted out. This is also her third musical project since being evicted. In 2002, she released a single called Vuelve, and in 2003, she featured on Inma Serrano's single, Mi Amor.
The duo met on the Operación Triunfo tour, where Fanlo was the tour guitarist, and started working together, playing in clubs around Barcelona and Madrid. In 2005 they released their debut album He Perdido Los Zapatos under their own label Daconte Music. The next year Universal Music signed them and re-released the album with a bonus track.
In 2006, they were nominated for an MTV Europe Music Awards.
Their music is a mix of classical pop and rock, and it talks about worries such as love, loneliness and a search for ideals.
