Biography

Jose Sosa Esquivel and Margarita Ortiz, both artists’ first-born, came into the world at the end of the 40’s. The former was a tenor of the National opera in Mexico and the later concert pianist. Febuary 17th 1948 set the guidelines for the JOSE ROMULO SOSA ORTIZ.

Games, mischief, study and songs, musical festivals, the school choir, the intonation of the National Anthem in relevant dates, all paved the way to the Perfomer JOSE ROMULO SOSA ORTIZ, who by the beginging of the 50’s started to show his lineage.

To learn to play the guitar was must, without neglecting his studies. On approaching his teens during the turbulent 60’s, his only and most important obligation was to go through high school. His first excursion as a singer was in March, 1963 when he formed part trio, together with his cousin Paco Ortiz and his friend Alfredo Benitez.

The serenades in the repertory of the romantic hits of the time, set forth the beginnings of a career. However, he always had to fight his father’s opposition, who demanded that only classical music be listened to at home, and that his studies as an Aviation’s Mechanic not neglected.

JOSE ROMULO SOSA ORTIZ unintentionally, started seeking a style, being the faithful companion of a worker in the lithographic field, in the dark “Repro Art” room. Being a romantic essence, he worked, while listening to his favorties Frank Sinatra and Johnny Mathis on the radio…JOSE ROMULO SOSA ORTIZ started to define his interpretation style, by then he was already working in the most famous “Singing Cafes” of the time, such as “Plein Solei” and “Ipanema”.
