Vilma Palma e Vampiros is an Argentine neo folk rock band from Rosario. They came to prominence in 1992 after the release of the hits Bye, Bye and La Pachanga.[1]

Origin of the name[edit]

Translated as Vilma Palma and Vampires, the name was taken from a graffiti[1] written over the metallic shutters of a closed furniture store by its former employees, calling out the manager: "Vilma Palma e Hijos Vampiros de los Obreros" (Vilma Palma and Children, Vampires of the Workers). With time, the graffiti vanished until the words "Vilma Palma e Vampiros" remained by 1991.[2]

This explanation makes for the grammatical error in the name: e is used instead of y (as and) only when followed by a word starting with i- or hi-.
