Chimo Bayo (born Joaquín Bayo, 25 October 1961) is a Spanish dance artist who gained prominence in the early 1990s with "Así Me Gusta A Mí (X-Ta Sí, X-Ta No)". The song was a major hit in Spain, Greece and South America as well as reaching number one in Japan, Israel and elsewhere.
Chimo Bayo hails from Valencia, Spain. He was attempting to represent Spain in the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest with his song about the Valencia fallas, Fiesta del fuego, but was disqualified at the last minute when it was discovered the song had been heard in clubs in Valencia prior to the 1 October deadline. In order to thank his fans for their support, Chimo Bayo is going to auction his head-mounted flashlights in a Spanish online auction and shopping website. The money will be invested in the production of his new album "Revolución" which will be on sale this summer. The auction's winners will appear on the record credits as "Revolución"'s producers.
