Pepito y Sus Cha Cha Chapas – Cha-Cha-Cha Para Dois (1962)

Philips P 630.487 L

Dancing with Pepito and his (y sus) Chá Chá Chapas, opens, after the dance to this masterfully performed Brazilian compositions, the inevitable question:
Who is Pepito?

And: Who are the Chapas, masters of the Chá-Chá-Chá rhythm?

The back cover text on their only career album (according to Memoria Musical) explains every aspect of compositions performed, but does not credit the musicians and says almost nothing about Pepito.

On the other hand the producer‘s full name is fortunately written loud and clear:

GUESS by Bossanov:
Really nice Cha cha cha’s from Pepito.
I can only suppose, who is Pepito
After that record Philips released 2 LP of “Don Pepito“, latest with arrangements of Miguel Cidrás (Miguel Angel Cidrás Rivas, RIP in 2008)- pianist and arranger from Montevideo famous for his work with Equipe label (as Miguel Angel with Os Ipanemas), with Som Nove combo, “Boogaloo Combo“, with tango bands, etc. May he is this “Pepito”?
