Río Roma (Spanish: ['ri.o 'roma]; English: "Rome River") are a Mexican Latin rock duo. It consists of brothers José Luis Ortega Castro (born January 17, 1981) and Raúl Ortega Castro (born July 17, 1984).

José Luis is also a prolific songwriter. Famous singers who had recorded songs written by him include: Ha*Ash, María José, Alejandro Fernández, Yuridia, Camila, Alejandra Guzmán and Pandora, among others.[1]

They chose "Río Roma" as their name because of how it sounds and it reads "Oír Amor" (hearing love) backwards.[2]


From 1997 until 2002, José Luis was member of Mexican boy band Ciao Mama, with whom he recorded two albums: "Ciao Mama" in 1999, and "Puntos Suspensivos..." in 2001, both under EMI Music México.[3]

In 2008 José Luis and Raúl recorded a Norteño album with their first names. They started as Río Roma in 2011.
