Los del Río (Spanish pronunciation: ['loz ðel 'ri.o], "Those from the River"), also known as The Del Rios, are a Spanish Latin pop and dance duo which formed in 1962 by Antonio Romero Monge (born 1937) and Rafael Ruíz Perdigones (born 1939). They are best known for their smash-hit dance single "Macarena", originally released in August 1995. The song went on to become a worldwide success.

Career

The single "Tengo, tengo" was released on February 18, 1996, and appeared later that year on the album Fiesta Macarena. The group ultimately released six albums: A mí me gusta, Macarena Non Stop, Fiesta Macarena, Colores, Rio y Guestano and Alegria y cosabuena. Five of the albums featured versions of "Macarena", in different styles and remixes.

Because of their considerable success worldwide, their native town of Dos Hermanas has named a new municipal music hall, the Anfiteatro Los del Río, after them.

Another well-known song by Los del Río is "Sevilla tiene un color especial," which is featured prominently in the Spanish smash success movie Ocho apellidos vascos.
