About Nena Daconte

Pop/rock duo Nena Daconte was comprised of vocalist Mai Meneses and guitarist Kim Fanlo. Meneses was a participant on the second season of the television competition Operacion Triunfo. She came to know Fanlo (a studio musician from Barcelona) through the show, as he was a member of the band that accompanied the vocalists. Forming a friendship during their time on the show, the duo recorded He Perdido los Zapatos in 2006 and released it through Universal. The single "Idiota" became a radio hit almost immediately, and the second single off the album, "En Que Estrella Estara," made the Top 40 charts two weeks in a row. He Perdido los Zapatos was certified as a gold record, selling over 40,000 copies in November of 2006. ~ Evan C. Gutierrez
