“Niños prodigio” (Child prodigies) is the name of a band with their own official fan club, their own unofficial fan club, their own youtube channel and even their own Facebook page. They also have their own perfume and clothing. What they really miss is… their own music (on their videos we can listen to versions of unreal songs).
Truth, which is almost a secret, is that “Niños prodigio” is an artistic project that has been under construction since 2003, thanks to Luis Bueno, Daniel Diosdado, Manuel A. Domínguez Gómez, Álvaro León and (our ephemeral colleague) Pilar Rojo. Their purpose is to experiment with hype and fanaticism. Become famous without creating anything, just air. In this case, without composing music. And they are achieving it.
I wonder whether they’ll get more fans as a band or as an artistic project.
They presented their record Love Songs in Cordova, within Eutopía’08 activities.
