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.
Maibritt, or Britt for short, from Vienna was selected as the singer of Pachanta from over 600 applicants. Her voice and her unique talent make her the perfect lady at the side of singer Cristóbal.

PACHANTA – THE EURO LATIN-POP DUO
New style of music for
a new pop duo!
Above all, the artists and live acts of the 80s and 90s are more in demand than ever. And so an idea arose from Manuel Pielka’s passion … The biggest hits of the 80s are to revive in a completely new style of music: Euro-Latin-Pop not only brings back the songs of the 80s – but brings them back with reggaeton beats and Latino- Sounds in the future.
To this end, Manuel Pielka and his wife Tanja founded the record label MONTANIA EMPIRE RECORDS and won several music producers who have received multiple platinum awards for the project.
Cristóbal and Britt
The duo consists of the singer Maibritt and singer Cristóbal. Cristóbal has already won “POPSTARS” and can be heard as a singer in many songs by well-known artists, e.g. in “Bachata” by Kay One. The singer who will conquer the charts alongside Cristóbal is called Maibritt. The 18-year-old Viennese prevailed against the TOP 15 finalists from the casting in an exciting final in Hamburg. With the support of top-class coaches such as Juliette Schoppmann for the vocals and Marvin A. Smith for the choreography, the artists performed in front of the jury during the weekend. Ultimately, the choice fell on Maibritt and the initiators of the project Tanja and Manuel Pielka (MPM Music), Markus Krampe (Management Pachanta) and Cristóbal celebrated Maibritt as the new Pachanta singer. As a backstage presenter, Faye Montana accompanied the final, which was streamed live on Instagram. Maibritt, the youngest and only Austrian candidate, is now coming home with a record deal. Of more than 600 possible candidates, the 18-year-old singer was “die Senorita”, who, together with singer Cristobal, will become the Euro Latin Pop Duo “Pachanta”.
The new duo revives the greatest hits of the 80s in a completely new sound and packs them into a new style with reggaeton beats and Latino sounds.
The first single “Cruel Summer” entered the TOP 40 of the German DJ Charts straight away and with an upward trend in week 2 it was already on position 17! For the “Miami Heat Remix”, none other than Rico Bernasconi could be won, who already remixed the song successfully in 2010 with Ace of Base. You can hear that “Cruel Summer” is one of his all time favorites. Pure summer!
