“OV7” performed its best and most popular songs during the presentation, where more than 10,000 citizens attended, considering this was a free admission event, organized by the Municipality of Merida, headed by Mayor Renan Barrera Concha.

The band “OV7”, formerly known as “La Onda Vaselina,” is a Latin pop group from Mexico that was formed in April 1989, but it was not until the early 1990s that OV7 began to leave their mark.

With a career spanning more than 23 years and several hits in the Latin American charts, OV7 remains as one of the most successful pop bands in the Latin pop industry. The group disbanded in 2003 but reunited in 2010.
