Baccara, consisting of Mayte Mateos and Cristina Sevilla, has taken the decision to split. The group will however continue to exist. Mayte Mateos has found herself a new partner to join the new Baccara.
Paloma Blanco will from now on be the new member of Baccara and replaces Cristina Sevilla who ended the Baccara cooperation with Mayte Mateos. The new Baccara will continue bringing the joy of music to all their fans.
Baccara participated in the Swedish Melodifestivalen 2004 earlier this year with the song Soy tu Venus, but entered the Eurovision hall of Fame when they competed in the 1978 Eurovision Song Contest. With the song Parlez-vous Français?, they ended 7th representing Luxembourg.
This split isn't the first in the history of Baccara. Back in 1978, Baccara consisted of Mayte Mateos and Maria Mendiola.
