Víctor Manuel De Anda Iturbe (May 8, 1936, Mexico CityNovember 28, 1987) was a Mexican singer, nicknamed "“El Pirulí."

In the 60s, he made his first contact with the artistic world, working as an aquatic clown in a water skiing show in Acapulco. After a spinal injury, he stayed in the Hotel Posada Vallarta in March 1964 where he started to sing professionally in the hotel'’s bar. Out of this experience came his first compositions, and in no time at all he recorded his first album, titled “Noches en el Posada Vallarta,” which included the popular track “Puerto Vallarta.” Throughout his extensive career he recorded numerous albums, always with the collaboration of Chamin Correra, better known as the “Primer Requinto de América”-that have proven very successful in the 18 years since his death.

“El Pirulí” died on November 28, 1987, leaving behind as his legacy numerous recordings, which years later, and digitally remastered, would be used by well known musicians of Latin romantic music on a tribute CD with participants like Cristian Castro (on the track “Mil besos”); Luis Fonsi (on the track “Historia de un Amor”) and Pandora (on the track “Verdad Amarga”), among many others
