Jarabedepalo's North American Tour in Vancouver
The Spanish band presents their new album Somos at Rickshaw Theatre.
Formed in Barcelona in the mid-’90s, the Latin rock outfit was the brainchild of guitarist and frontman Pau Dones, along with drummer Alex Tenas, bassist Joan Gene, and drummer Dani Forcada.
Jarabedepalo made their first big splash with its 1996 album La Flaca, the title track from which became the song of the summer in Spain in 1997. Determined not to be a one-hit wonder, Dones led his band through a series of successful releases over the next decade, including Depende (1998), De Vuelta y Vuelta (2001), Grandes Éxitos (2003), Un Metro Cuadrado (2004), and Adelantando (2007). In 2008, Jarabedepalo announced it was departing from its longtime record label, EMI Music Spain, and going independent. The band compressed the letters in its name and founded its own imprint, releasing, Orquestra Reciclando. After the tremendous success of ¿Y Ahora Que Hacemos?, the band presents his new album Somos, released in February 2014.
12 nominations for the Latin Grammy Awards and collaborations with artists of the stature of Celia Cruz, Compay Segundo, Pavarotti, Alanis Morrissette, Chrissy Hynde (The Pretenders), endorse the quality, credibility and stature of the band.
Somos is the band’s new album. A rock funk album featuring 12 powerful songs with a high-voltage message, with meticulous arrangements and exceptional lyrics. Some outstanding collaborations: two Latin-American and two Spanish artists. The album has received 3 Latin Grammy Nominations: Album of the Year, Best Popo Rock Album, and Best Rock Song for Somos.
