I have so many favourite songs that I can add! The one I am thinking about now is Mediterraneo by Joan Manuel Serrat. You may know it, if not, listen to it. You may find it in youtube, it belongs to the 70s.
I will keep adding more songs as they come to my mind!...

Some of my favourites artists are Amaral (they're now doing a tour around the states), Vetusta Morla (an indie spanish group), Celtas Cortos (celtic-rock), Sidonie, Love of Lesbian...
Here are some songs I really like:

Amaral - Te Necesito


Vetusta Morla - Un Día en el Mundo


091 y Amaral - La Noche que la Luna salió Tarde

I saw a band called L.A. last weekend in Alicante.

They were good!

Thumbs up

I have been listening to a lot of Spanish music, much of it recommended here.
I particularly like the late Merecedes Sosa including Gracias a mi Vida.
I have posted under learning spanish a link to the video mag veinte mundos
http://www.veintemundos.com/en/
From this month they are going to include a singer each month. this month there is an article about Violeta Parra including Gracias a mi Vida and a link to a 2010 recording of the song which appears to be a charity song for the Chilean earthquake recorded by a group of artists.

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.
Hi,
Perhaps if you want to know about Spanish music you can listen this Spanish radio called Cadena Dial

Has anyone heard of María Dolores Pradera not mentioned as far as I can tell on this thread? She sings lovely melodies and nearly every song has a charming acoustic guitar backing. I don't care if she's regarded as naff in Spain these days, I like her songs and the words are as clear as you could wish for. I found her by clicking around on Spotify.

Funny you mention her now. A couple of weekends ago I went up to Santander driving to see my mother and I forgot to take any music to listen in the car. On the way back, the only thing I could find in my mother's house was a doble CD of Maria Dolores Pradera. She was very, very popular in the 1970's. I had not heard her for a while, and I was amazed as how clear one can understand her and as you say, the songs have nice melodies. She has sung in the last few years some songs of Carlos Cano and she has performed with Sabina . The charming acoustic guitar backing was for a long time performed by Los Gemelos, twin brothers, one an architect, also proffesor in the University of Madrid and the other an engineer. One of them has already died. They played Spanish guitar, rather than acoustic. You can see them in the video of Carlos Cano.
This summer, Maria Dolores Pradera, at the tender age of 87 gave a concert in San Lorenzo de El Escorial. (I didn't go to it)

Limeña, Amarraditos, La flor de la Canela, Fina estampa, are some of the most popular songs she sang (still sings!)

Default Argentinian Music

I'm signed up to a BBC language newsletter, there languages site is excellent. the newsletter I received today had a link to a radio programme I had missed on Radio 3 called World Routes - there are 2 programmes by an American linked to Argentinian music Tango and Indian.

You can access I Player from abroad if it is a radio programme.
