Julio Jaramillo

   
       
Bibliography
 
Julio Alfredo Jaramillo Laurido, also known as J.J., was born in Guayaquil, Eucador, on October 1, 1935. Because of his humble origins, he had to work from young age in a shoemaker's shop. He grew up listening to artists such as Olimpo Cárdenas, Carlos Rubira Infante, and the Guayaquil and Villafuerte duets, which had influence in his calling towards singing. Years later, after taking part on several amateur contests without success, he gained some fame after the recording of his first album, “Pobre mi madre querida” (1955), in duet with Fresia Saavedra. He then recorded the pasillo “Esposa” with his mentor Carlos Rubira Infante, and the next year the vals “Fatalidad”  which was played in every radio station in Ecuador, and in some foreign stations as well. But he only achieved international recognition with his hit “Nuestro Juramento”, that lead him to numerous tours within Latin America.He finally returned to Guayaquil in 1977, but in an ill condition that impeded him from performing until his death a year later. He was honored by many of his listeners after he died. Till this day he is considered one of the best singers Latin America has ever had. During his lifetime, his songs were deeply valued by his public, to such extent that after his death, nearly 200 000 people gathered to render him homage. In fact, his songs are still being listened nowadays. He is also regarded by some as a symbol of Ecuadorian national identity

After a proper preparation and an arduous selection of young women and music themes, the MC Gregor Productions brings out the feminine group “Doble Sentido”. The group is made up of 5 talented, nice, sensual and particularly professional young women.  Erika, Sonia, Iliana, Mayi and Sugey. Doble Sentido is not just “another” group, it’s the conjunction of 5 women who make the difference in the existing genre of tropical music. Why the name “ Doble sentido” (Double sense)? This name is regarding the scenery they realize, amusing the public with sentences, songs and games with double sense, but without being vulgar. The style of music is Technopaseito, Technocumbia and as something new, they created the Newpasacalle, that consists of the fusion of Creole themes and tropical rhythms.
Thanks to the great successes they earned throughout Ecuador, they were 5 days on the Galapagos Islands in February 2004, where they were invited as guest of honor during the festivities on the Islands. In March 2004 they traveled to Spain to perform in Lorca, Pamplona, Madrid, Barcelona, Jumilla, Murcia, amongst others.
