Campy and popular Mexican star Paquita la del Barrio is making her debut performance at the Kauffman Center this summer. Her music, a staple in cantinas and clubs throughout Mexico, often takes a feminist stance and has earned her a huge female following. Men are more than welcome to attend, but get ready to be on the receiving end of some good-natured ribbing. The renowned singer has gained prestige with her signature phrase, with which she often teases male spectators in her shows, "¿Me estás oyendo, inútil?" ("Are you listening, good-for-nothing?"). She won a “Premio Los Nuestro” and a “Premio de la Gente” and was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2008.
