In my opinion, one of the best songs ever writen in Spanish :

Antonio Vega - El Sitio de Mi Recreo (1992)

Donde nos llevó la imaginación,
donde con los ojos cerrados
se divisan infinitos campos.
donde se creó la primera luz
junto a la semilla de cielo azul
volveré a ese lugar donde nací.
De sol, espiga y deseo
son sus manos en mi pelo,
de nieve, huracán y abismos,
el sitio de mi recreo.
Viento que a su murmullo parece hablar
mueve el mundo con gracia, la ves bailar
y con él, el escenario de mi hogar.
Mar, bandeja de plata, mar infernal
es su temperamento natural,
poco o nada cuesta ser uno más.
De sol, espiga y deseo...
Silencio, brisa y cordura
dan aliento a mi locura,
hay nieve, hay fuego, hay deseo,
ahí donde me recreo.

Some bands I haven't seen in this post:

Estilo: modern metal o como lo quieran llamar.

Algunos ejemplos:
Renuncia al sol
Dame aire
Algún día <-bastante bonita, incluso si no te gusta el estilo

Estilo: Techno - pop / pop - rock 80s con toques industriales, sinfónicos e incluso flamencos dependiendo de la canción. Atención, grupo mítico de aquella época. Muy recomendable.

Algunos ejemplos:
Mujer contra mujer
Cruz de navajas
Hijo de la Luna
Naturaleza muerta <- Una de mis favoritas
Me cuesta tanto olvidarte (live)
Una rosa es una rosa

Facto Delafé y las Flores Azules
Estilo: Trip Hop / Chill Out / Rap experimental. Bastante relajante.
Mar el poder del mar
Sólo palabras
La Fuerza
Enero en la playa

It's a pretty varied list, isn't it? I hope you enjoy it. If you like me to, I'll come back with more recommendations. BTW, don't be shy to point out my mistakes with the english language. I'm trying to get better on it.

PS: Hola a todos, por cierto. Un saludo.

Default Ay, caramba! (My first post here ;)).


I'm Agata, I'm a newbie and my music taste is a bit eclectic as well

Manu Chao, Ojos de Brujo, Orishas, Gotan Project... (almost) everybody knows it, so let's concentrate on another stuff.

Buena Vista Social Club.

A phenomenon in Latin music as a whole.

A compilation bringing together the legendary musicians.

A must have in your spanish (well, actually cuban) music collection.

Simplemente genial.

Muchachito Bombo Infierno.

Si os gusta la guitarra...

(Btw, one day I'll pay the bills with my own guitar ;p

Yep, instead of becoming a bloody lawyer ;p).

Lhasa. (Also known as Lhasa de Sela).

And Lila Downs.

Singer-songwriters of the extraordinary voices and ethnic, folk, ezoteric music-styles.

Y ahora algo mas divertido...


Vale la pena escucharla tambien.


My brother says it's a kind of music for our grandma... ;>

Anyway, Machito reminds me of my first salsa classes and makes me smile and move my hips from side to side even if I'm sitting down listening to it xD

Everytime my spanish-speaking friends feel blue I keep on sending them this one...

...'cause this funny little song makes me wanna hug the world ;-P

And finally...

here goes the BEST spanish song EVER.

Well, in my humble opinion at least.

Devendra es la leche ;p


And that's all for now.

Hope it's been useful.

If not-hope it WILL be useful.

(Unfortunately I'm neither English nor Spanish, so feel free to correct me if needed.

Ah, and...

....saludos desde Gales para todos!

I'm not a big fan of traditional Spanish music, I tend to prefer pop music, and in Ronda we don't have a dedicated music shop, or a shop like Fnac, so we have to make do with HiperSol or do further afield.

Having said that, one of the most knowledgeable Flamenco fans I've ever met lives here in Ronda and is developing a webshop to sell Flamenco music.

On my iPod I have Chambao, La Oreja de Van Gogh, Monica Naranjo, Javier Estrada. I've ben finding simple pop songs and ballads are great for picking out words and helping me learn Spanish.

They (or their record label more like) need to get with it. I'm surprised that they wouldn't make this available via iTunes. The first time that I heard it, this was stuck in my head all day too.

the female singer has left, but they have replaced her. So the songs will be the same, as they are composed by some of the group but sang by somebody else.

Have Fito y Fitipaldis already been mentioned? They have taken alot of influence from Eric Clapton and make some nice tunes.

* Camarón - My all-time favourite flamenco cantaor.
* Paco de Lucía
* Manolo Caracol
* Estrella Morente
* Manu Chao
* Ojos de Brujo
* Jarabe de Palo - I'm crazy about their song Adelantando (with La Shica) and Me gusta como eres (which they also sang in Italian, with a hidden track in Aragonés)
* Estopa
* Triana - Jesús de la Rosa's voice in Tu frialdad is haunting and beautiful.
* Mezquita
* El canto del loco
* Asignatura Pendiente
* Ketama
* José Mercé
* La Oreja de Van Gogh
* El sueño de morfeo
* Mägo de Oz - I love Hoy toca ser feliz and the music video is great too.

Any Spaniard who's more than 30 y.o. will more likely love 'RADIO FUTURA' a lendary rock ensemble that was born out of the 'movida madrileña' cultural outburst of the late 70's (the Spanish 'new wave') but survived the hype of that movement with a brilliant career throughout the 80's.

They are responsible for a large number of hits that are still remembered today : they evolved from a type of amateuresque synth-punk towards a more professionaly classic-rock with some jamaican and latin-american influences.

This is a performance on TV, 25 years ago of the song 'A Cara o Cruz' :

Default Spanish Music

Has anyone on this thread mentioned Amaral, Pereza or Piratas? (Have not read all 14 pages of the thread).

Saw Amaral on TV whilst in Alicante a few years ago doing some acoustic stuff and thought that it sounded OK and was useful for learning more Spanish in a more fun kind of way. I believe that she has now also worked with Moby.

Does anyone know anything about the Piratas, was told that I should give them a listen by a Spanish friend, have one CD but know nothing about the band or their history. Anyone know anything about them?

I can't stop listening to this particular song called La Lola by Café Quijano. I can't shake the feeling that I've heard this before...
