Who is Pachito E’che?

The winning anthem called “Pachito E’ché” is from the year 1948 and it was not written as an anthem for soccer or Deportivo Cali. The song was composed by Álex Tovar, who spent the night at the Hotel Granada, in Bogotá (today the Banco de la República Building is here), had no way to pay a debt to the owner, businessman Francisco Echeverry, and decided to give a song away. “The lyrics practically say nothing.but the melody, with its rhythm, was the radio success of the moment throughout the country,” said journalist Fabio Valdes. “Radio La Voz del Valle had a monopoly on broadcasting music and scores from other cities in the country, and they were the ones who started the tradition of playing the recording we are referring to; It is not known if at the suggestion of the Board, or if it was a personal act of the announcer Samuel Duque. When Deportivo Cali appeared on the field before the game and when the team was winning, the recording played,” add Valdes. The fans have fallen in love with the song Pachito E’ché during a Clásico Añejo on July 31, 1949. When the phrase “Who is it? Who is it?” a gambler yelled “Cali!” and the Deportivo anthem was born.

A part of Pachito E’ché’s lyrics:

Whom? Whom?

I’m going to say it

Whom? Whom?

I’m going to tell them

Whom? Whom?

I have to say

Whom? Whom?

I’m going to tell them

I’m going to tell him

I’m going to tell him

I’m going to tell him

Pachito E’ché they tell the Lord

Pachito E’ché is of great sensation

Pachito E’ché dances mambo and son

Pachito E’ché and he has great expression
