"I thought they were laughing at me. They were loudly clapping hands, and I thought they were just asking us to hurry up, finish the song quickly, but when we did it, it was a blast!" says Juanse. "When you are showing what you do, singing in Spanish to a mostly Anglo audience, it's really scary. You don't know if they are going to throw a stone at your face because they hate you, or if they are going to love it. Well, they loved it!" Two days later, on a visit to Graceland, the band was recognized by U.S. fans and asked to sign autographs.
Five years ago, when they came to record their Unplugged album with MTV, the band members couldn't even dream of playing in front of a big audience in the States. So what's next? "The Argentine Invasion," suggests Juanse with a smile. "Like the Third World War fought with wine and no money."
