Behind the Scenes
THE EURO LATIN-POP DUO
The new music project PACHANTA revives the greatest hits of the 80s in a completely new sound and brings them back to the future with reggaeton beats and Latino sounds!
With multi gold and platin winning producers, PACHANTA covers not only the songs of the 80s on their debut album “Miami Nights” – they also invent their own sound style ….. the EURO LATIN-POP.
Cristóbal is the voice of PACHANTA. He has already won the casting show POPSTARS in the past and can be heard as a singer in many songs by well-known artists such as in »Bachata« by Kay One. In addition to Pietro Lombardi, Knossi, David Hasselhoff, Noemi Nikita (Tik Tok), Kay One is also one of the supporters of PACHANTA! Some of which can also be seen in the video!

TANJA & MANUEL PIELKA
REcord LABEL & BOOKING AGENCY
Besides their leading European booking agency MPM MUSIC with more than 200 artists and bands, TANJA & MANUEL PIELKA have founded the new label Montania Empire Records (Universal Music). From them comes the idea and the concept of Pachanta.
As producer of stars like Kay One and Pietro Lombardi, Boris Fleck, better known as STARD OVA, was awarded several times platinum for his music and even received the very rare Diamond award (5-times platinum for one title)! With Pachanta he founded the whole new style of Euro-Latin-Pop.
The event and music manager MARKUS KRAMPE has already led numerous artists to success and made stars out of them. Every year, millions of visitors celebrate at his events – when this is not prevented by a pandemic. In 2021, he wants to repeat this with Pachanta.
Marvin A. SMITH
We are proud to announce that we could win the legend MARVIN A. SMITH as Creative Director Dance & Performance for Pachanta!
He already worked with international world stars and show giants. Helene Fischer, Yvonne Catterfeld, Anastacia, Ellie Goulding, No Angels…. Marvin captivated them all with his unique talent for conception, training and realization of a spectacular show performance!

PACHANTA – THE EURO LATIN-DANCE PROJECT
Attention, the endless summer is here!
Attention, the endless summer is here! It is true that the most beautiful of all seasons is limited to June to September from a meteorological point of view. But thanks to Pachanta, the sunny season could now last much, much longer. With hot-blooded new versions of the greatest pop hits of the eighties in a trendy ‘Urban Latin Pop’ style, Pachanta offers carefree beach party flair. Feeling good with a drinkable Aperol spritz, a fruity cocktail or a cool long drink in your hand, in breezy casual dress at whimsical pool fetes, on warm dance nights or on hot days under shady palm trees on the beach: Pachanta are the dream come true of a carefree summer, with atmospheric music and in the company of all those we love.
Pachanta, that is above all and especially Cristóbal. The charismatic artist extraordinaire is the voice, the frontman and the face of this new musical project, which could also be called a sound system due to its clever and tasteful production. Whether with female support in the two first singles ‘Cruel Summer’ and ‘Wicked Game’, or currently in collaboration with DJ NIZE-T in the new song ‘Right Here Waiting For You’: the omnipresent Cristóbal dominates the entire scene!
Cristóbal’s career so far has only known one direction: up to the top! In 2007, the then 20-year-old was one of the winners of the casting show ‘Popstars’. Since then he has celebrated great national and international successes with his own songs and with ‘Room 2012’. In addition, he has been involved in many successful projects as a singer, including Kay One’s ‘Bachata’, which has recorded 40 million (!!) streams. Cristóbal’s collaboration with Pietro Lombardi, whom he accompanied on tour as singer and pianist, was also spectacular, as were his sensational support shows with Rihanna or DJ Bobo.
Behind the scenes, Pachanta and Cristóbal can rely on absolute professionals: The producers of the songs include multi-platinum studio cracks like Elephant Music, B-Case, J.O.D. or even Stard Ova. In addition, the choreographer Marvin A. Smith (Helene Fischer, Yvonne Catterfeld, Anastacia, No Angels) is part of the Pachanta team.
Manuel Pielka, one of the most successful German artist agents for 25 years and – together with his wife Tanja – operator of the agency ‘MPM Music’ (Kay One, Knossi, Finch, Die Atzen, Mike Singer, as well as Destinys Child or Puff Daddy in the past) and the record label ‘Montania Empire Records’ (distribution: Universal Music) acts as mastermind, manager and idea generator of the overall project.
Pachanta’s great successes so far speak for themselves: The first single, a remake of the Bananarama hit ‘Cruel Summer’, including a great clip with the famous ‘DeLorean’ from ‘Back to the Future’, landed in the Top 10 of the German dance charts, followed by a remake of the Chris Isaak track ‘Wicked Game’ including a studio clip. As a romantic ballad, ‘Wicked Game’ was the perfect way to bridge the waiting time for the next summer.
Now it goes on in huge steps: On June 10, 2022 the brand new Pachanta single (including video) ‘Right Here Waiting For You’ will be released, a trendy new version of the Richard Marx classic, produced by B-Case & Chris Cronauer, who have already composed and worked for Helene Fischer, Nico Santos, Robin Schulz, Topic, Vanessa Mai or also Capital Bra, among others. This will be followed in August 2022 by the number ‘Girl You Know It’s True’ (Original: Milli Vanilli), and on November 4, 2022 by a racy Pachanta version of the Roxette song ‘It Must Have Been Love’, released by Roxette mastermind Peer Gessle himself. A true accolade! Then in November 2022, the complete Pachanta debut album ‘Miami Nights’ will be released.
With such a great talent and such captivating quality, of course some of the most important television shows will not miss Pachanta: On June 12, 2022 Cristóbal and DJ NIZE-T are invited to the ‘ZDF-Fernsehgarten’ to present ‘Right Here Waiting For You’. On July 2, Pachanta will be heard and seen in the ‘MDR Sommer Show’. And on November 5, 2022 the public premiere of ‘It Must Have Been Love’ will follow in the ‘Giovanni Zarrella Show’, then by the way accompanied by a big symphony orchestra! So one thing is already certain: Pachanta’s ‘Urban Latin Pop’ summer has begun, and there is no end in sight!
