The Chilean group Hechizo was formed in Ovalle, a northern city where seven local musicians, influenced by tropical bands such as Sonora Palacios and Giolito y su Combo, decided to create their own project. After signing with independent Naranjo Records, Hechico recorded a self-titled debut album, featuring the hit single "La Temporera," which was voted one of the most popular Chilean songs in 1998. After issuing Mirada Azul, the group started touring around the country. Sony Music signed them in 2000, releasing a live record called Vivo Que Nunca, which achieved gold status soon afterward.
