Details

Matute is a Mexican pop "covers" group formed in 2007. The sextet is led by singer and producer Jorge D'Alessio, son of actors Lupita D'Alessio and Jorge Vargas. Conceived as an act to pay tribute to the music of the '80s from both English- and Spanish-speaking acts, their repertoire consists of bilingual versions of hits from the era, often in medley format. D'Alessio created the group after coordinating sponsored musical tours for a major refreshment company, where he met many musicians and singers. Named for a cartoon character from the kids' television show Don Gato y Sus Gang, the band played its first show to a mere 14 people. -Allmusic
