Mixing flamenco-styled guitars with contemporary dance rhythms, La Esperanza was led by songwriter, producer, and session ace Carlos Villalobos, who recorded the project's self-titled 1998 debut LP with the participation of guitarist André Barboza (on two tracks) and bassist Rob Hagopian. After changing the project's name to Esperanza (without the "La") in 2001, Villalobos released sophomore album Esperanza II, again with guitarist Barboza participating on selected tracks.
