"Las Chicas Del Can" is a famous and extremely successful all-female merengue group from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Originally created by Wilfrido Vargas, several teams of female vocalists and musicians have alternately performed under the name "Las Chicas del Can" throughout the group's history.
Originally founded in 1982, "Las Chicas del Can" performed hit after hit throughout the eighties, and a great number of their singles and albums achieved gold and/or platinum status. Hits such as "El Negro No Puede", "La Media María", Sukaína, "Juana la Cubana", Culeca, "Ta' Pillao", Fuego, Fiebre, and Las Pequeñas Cosas are now considered "classics" of merengue music.
Lead singer "Belkis Concepción" left the group early in its history to go solo in 1985. Singers "Míriam Cruz" (the uncrowned queen of the Merengue) and "Eunice Betances" then teamed up and got vocal support from, among others, Luchy Betances (younger sister of Eunice) and Verónica Medina. Medina herself then went solo in 1987.
