Question Favourite Spanish music

How about some more tips on your favourite Spanish music?

I was in Madrid a few weeks back and took the chance to head over to the FNAC store (http://www.fnac.es) and stock up. Purchases included "Techari" the latest album from Ojos de Brujos. Other favourites include Jarabe De Palo and a top play on my Ipod for some time - "Pafuera Telaranas" by Bebe.

On Ben's recommendation (see http://www.notesfromspain.com/category/books/music/) I have just bought "Luzia" by Paco de Lucia on ITunes. Definitely a thumbs up.

I'm glad you mentioned Ojos de Brujo. I've their "Barí" album and it's perty good. Hopefully Ben or Marina can recommend recordings similar to those recorded during their Flamenco audiotour podcast. They are fantastic.

Another interesting band from Galicia is the Killer Barbies. They sing in both English and Spanish. In this cover of Iggy Pop's "Candy", Silvia Superstar does some of the lyrics in Spanish.



I also like Cabra Mecánica, Nacha Pop, Triple X, Las niñas, Sabina, and even Las Ketchup.

Default Radio Tarifa

A few years back, in London’s Barbican, I saw a group called Radio Tarifa and thought they were very good. They had a strong Moorish influence.

See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-4RCI08JFM&feature=related

the annoying thing is that they were actually playing live in London this week and I missed them. You can find a short review here: http://arts.guardian.co.uk/reviews/s...754359,00.html

If you liked the "Bari" album you should also like the latest one as well.

¡hasta luego!

Excellent stuff. ISTR that he is Spanish but lived in France from an early age with his parents fleeing Franco. His Spanish sounds South American to me. The description of a concert in Columbia... all the audience with guns

I believe is the other way around: born in Paris of Galician and Basque origin.

I just received the latest issue of the spanish language audio magazine Puerta del Sol (http://www.puerta-del-sol.com/) and noticed that they have included Zapatillas from El Canto del Loco on it.

The band is introduced as "un grupo hace bailar a los jóvenes en España" and the song definitely has a rock/pop feel to it. So is the singer Dani Martín the current teen-idol in Spain?

Wow, we used Puerta Del Sol, to practice our listening for the AP exam, we had to fill in words and such, it was difficult, becuase of the very very fast speed the guy spoke.

I didn't know it had cool music like that on it.

Another good song(well sorta, it's a long story) is "Eva Maria Se Fue" sorta catchy, everyone is prolly laughing at me now..

As a listener of classic rock and occasional jazz, what's comparable from Spain?

Default Album release date

If anyone has been reading any of my posts in this thread, you will see I am particularly keen on a Spanish/Gibraltareno band called Taxi. Well, if anyone is interested, they have a new album out on June 12th entitled Mil Historias. I have been on their web site

http://usuarios.lycos.es/eltaximetro/index.php

and followed the links and have been able to listen to their new single called Aqui Estoy. I think It's brilliant. Give it a listen and also, join the forum, all Spaniards in there, good for your language learning as the web site is all in Espanol, no English at all. As I say, I really like this band and would love to see them live, maybe one day eh?
