Even though Ben and Marina have already discussed different types of music. I would like to hear of more spanish artists and bands, especially from spain.

What are your favorite Spanish bands and artists?

I like Julieta Venegas, but I'm also quite new to Spanish music. I grew up thinking that "Ranchero" and "Tejano" were what generally represented Spanish music. Now that the world is so much more international, I've found I actually like lots of Spanish music... Just not the ones I had heard before.

Also, it probably goes without saying that I really like Shakira, too. Very unique, cool voice, some absolutely great songs. She kinda reminds me of Alanis Morisette, but higher energy and more variety... and in Spanish (her best stuff is in Spanish).

I don't know that we get much music from Spain here in Texas, as most of our hispanic population (which is substantial and will be a majority in under 10 years) comes from Mexico and other areas of Latin America (increasingly others, particularly Honduras, El Salvador, etc.).

Good luck in your search! Have you tried the Latin section of iTunes?

I like this Asturian duo named MUS, electronic/minimalist/"avant-garde" music with vocals in Spanish and Asturian. Their records have been released on the Madrid-based label ACUARELA, but their latest album, LA VIDA, is on Green UFOs.

There's also LA BUENA VIDA from San Sebastian, who are more indie pop, I guess. I don't know if they're still around. And then ASTRUD (and their more electronica project HIDROGENESSE). These guys are from Barcelona.

For more traditional sounds, TOMATITO is one of the best flameco guitarists out there! I especially love the album AGUA DULCE.

A cheesy admission would be ALEJANDRO SANZ, a Madrid-born songwriter (balladeer?) who's fan base is mostly comprised of women. When you hear him, you might see why. His grated voice might take something to get used to, although I do LOVE his collaboration with Shakira, TE LO AGRADEZCO PERO NO, on his latest, EL TREN DE LOS MOMENTOS. This same SANZ is in the video for Shakira's LA TORTURA.

Alejandro Sanz is my ideal cure for insomnia. jeje. The songs of his that I've heard all seem very dull, although someone was telling me the other day that his earlier stuff was much better.

My cheesy admission is that I actually quite like David Bisbal for his voice/songs, but he's a bit off-putting to look at. All those stupid highkicks and the air-punching that he does really gets on my nerves! jeje

Great topic Alberto! I love Latin music, but my favorite is not from Spain. One of my favorite artists is Juanes (Colombian). He has some really cool stuff, "A Dios le Pido" I like, as well as "Fotografia". But he doesn't have any new stuff. He's supposed to be coming out with a new album this year. But what I really like most of all is salsa music (for dancing) and "tropical" latin--bachata, etc. I really like "Que Vuelva" by Raulin Rodriguez and songs by Monchy & Alexandra. Check out the "Tropical" section in itunes Latino, and you'll find some really good stuff. And...since I'm from Texas I have to like Mexicano, a little. I like Pepe Aguilar and Conjunto Primavera.

There is one artist from Spain I just remembered--Rayito. He's a really great flamenco guitarist and "Me Falta" is an awesome song. Go to itunes and listen; I know you'll want to get it!

My favorite artists from Spain are, in no particular order, La Oreja de Van Gogh, La 5a Estación, Amaral, Alex Ubago and Alejandro Sanz. I think Sanz takes some getting used to but has a few really good songs. From the Americas I like Ricardo Arjona (one of the best songwriters ever IMO), Enanitos Verdes, Maná, Bacilos, La Ley, Juanes, Elefante, Soraya, Shakira. I could probably think of more, but that'll get you started. Enjoy!

Well, I have checked out quite a few new bands from this thread and gained a lot of great new tracks to keep my mind off the task in hand at the gym.... Thanks. I also like Spanish Christian music and recently found a lot on emusic.com to download at about 22p a track. Marcos Barrientos is great, also Danilo Montero Lynda
