She has performed in three Vive Latino Festivals in México City, first in 2006, in 2011, and again in 2014. She was named «Band of the Month» on MTV Latin America in August 2006. Musicians in her band have varied with the years, and her current band is called The Black Pilgrims. Elis started her career in Guadalajara Jalisco, Mexico.
She has released 7 records to date, her last album «Black» & «White» was released on June 10, 2016, featuring mostly new material, and the previously released singles «Now Girls Rule!», «Olvídame» «Love Love Love», and «Soñador, all of which had not been included in any of the previous records. She was also a part of the tribute álbum Amo al Divo de Juarez with her versión of „Hasta Que Te Conocí“ by Juan Gabriel, as well as the tribute album Tributo A: Ana José Nacho (Mecano) with her version of „No Tienes Nada Que Perder“ by Mecano.
Elis Paprika & The Black Pilgrims embarked on their 2017 international tour including cities in Mexico, The United States, South Korea, and Europe. They were part of the Zandari Festa 2017 lineup of international artists, held from September 29 to October 1, 2017 in Hongdae, Seoul, South Korea, making this their second tour to include Asia.
In late October 2017, Elis Paprika & The Black Pilgrims premiered the official video for their single „Fight“.
The fictional city from “One Hundred Years of Solitude” is brought to life through the music of Macondo, an alt/indie rock quartet from Orosi, CA. Formed while frontman Israel Flores lived in exile in Mexico City, Macondo creates sounds that are confident and vigorous, exuding Mexican and American influences through use of cumbia rhythms, percussion, and rock ferocity. The potent mezcla of styles (a reflection of band member’s eclectic punk, norteño, and hard rock influences) results in genre bending tunes that is cultured and boundless. A fitting tribute to its magical namesake.
