Tatiana Palacios Chapa (born 12 December 1968) is a Mexican American actress, singer and television presenter. She has been nominated for five Latin Grammy Awards for Best Children's Album and has sold over 9 million records.

Early life[edit]

Tatiana was born on 12 December 1968 in Philadelphia, while her father was attending the University of Pennsylvania. A dual citizen of the United States and Mexico, Tatiana was raised in Monterrey, Mexico, by her parents, Dr. José Ramón Palacios Ortega and Diana Perla Chapa de Palacios, after her father's studies were completed in Pennsylvania.

Early career and pop music[edit]

Tatiana's first major musical project was as the character "Jane" in the 1984 live stage performance, Kuman, a Mexican rock opera about a Tarzan-like character. The show's 1984 album soundtrack also entitled Kuman was released under the group name, Cristal y Acero ‒ the rock trio consisting of guitarist Icar Smith, bassist Carlos Ortega, and drummer Samuel Shapiro.[1]
