Nena Daconte are a Spanish pop group. The members include the singer from Madrid, Mai Meneses, and the musician from Barcelona, Kim Fanlo. The band takes its name from a character in the short story "The Trail Of Your Blood On The Snow", by Gabriel García Márquez.

Mai Meneses first found fame in 2002 when she entered the second series of the Spanish reality TV show Operación Triunfo. However, in the first week, she was put up for eviction against the overall winner, Ainhoa, and was voted out. This is also her third musical project since being evicted. In 2002, she released a single called Vuelve, and in 2003, she featured on Inma Serrano's single, Mi Amor.

The duo met on the Operación Triunfo tour, where Fanlo was the tour bassist, and started working together, playing in clubs around Barcelona and Madrid. In 2005 they released their debut album He Perdido Los Zapatos under their own label Daconte Music. The next year Universal Music signed them and re-released the album with a bonus track.

In 2006, they were nominated for an MTV Europe Music Awards.and in 2009 too

Their music is a mix of classical pop and rock, and it talks about worries such as love, loneliness and a search for ideals.

Their second album, titled "Retales De Carnaval", was released in September 30, 2008. The first single, "Tenia Tanto Que Darte", premiered on 23 August.
