Biography

The group consisted of M’Balia Marichal, born in Mexico City; Ari Borovoy, born in Mexico City; Mariana Ochoa, born in Mexico City; Lidia Avila, born in Puebla, Puebla; Kalimba Marichal, born in Mexico City (he is the younger brother of bandmember M’Balia); Erika Zaba, born in Mexico City, and Oscar Schwebel, born in Ixtapan de la Sal, Edo. de México. The group had several other members that lasted less than 1 album with the group.

OV7 followed a trend started during the 1980s by another pop group Timbiriche. In 1989, Mexican singer and producer ‘Julissa’, decided to do her own version of ‘Grease’ or ‘Vaselina’ (in Spanish). After the season finished, Julissa decided to form a group based on the play, following the trend set by ‘Timbiriche’, she founded ‘La Onda Vaselina’. Shortly after, they recorded their first album, with remarkable success and with singles like, ‘Que Buen Reventon’ (their first single) and ‘Triste Es El Primer Adios’, that became big hits during the early 1990s. With their first album they sold over 100,000 copies, and had a successful tour. Their second album: ‘Onda Vaselina 2’, was one of the most successful albums of the 90’s in Mexico, with popular hits that became public domain, such as: ‘El Calendario’ and ‘Voy Voy Voy’. Their next album was, ‘Dulces Para Ti’, which was followed by a set of live shows in one of Mexico City’s most important venues, the ‘Teatro Aldama’. The album’s biggest hits were ‘Tu Seras Mi Baby’ and ‘La Llorona Loca’.
