Hola a todo el mundo has managed, with two records, a great number of live performances and festival gigs to become one of Spain’s most promising Pop Rock bands.

They commenced their story being five musicians:
Ari (guitar & singer) Ana (keyboard & vocals)
Alvaro (bass, drums, vocals) Josh (drums & vocals)
and Loreto (violin & vocals).

Labelled as “unclassifiable”, this band from Madrid invites us into their peculiar magic world that leaves no one indifferent; songs bathed in an impressive instrumental diversity with lyrics in English or Spanish. Musically; violin, banjo, piano, guitar, accordion, synthesizer arrangements and samples from other galaxies.
At the beginning of their particular musical journey they impressed us with their pure Anglo-Saxon folk, back then comparable to The incredible string band or Fairport convention and lately more comparable to Akron/Family o Fleet foxes. Imagination and rapture pop that links them to bands like Sufjan Stevens or Port O’brien. Long songs filled with different landscapes, like a journey which progresses, altering its shape, never looking back. As they themselves explain in their lyrics “A Light that guides us to find the unique truth of the spirit”, a somewhat prophetic mix of fables and gloomy stories.

In September 2010 they presented their first video clip “A movement between these two” an excellent piece directed and produced by Luis Cerveró and Canada.
After being chosen by many Medias as the musical sensation of 2009 & 2010, most likely band to triumph in 2011 and chosen as one of the best albums of 2010 and one of the best emerging bands of 2011 by the musical Press, they received the Independent Musical award for the best Pop Album of 2010.
Their second album Estela Castiza, an EP for which they received the POP EYE 2011 award, was launched in May 2011; songs in Spanish, fast and gleaming like a comet.
An exercise of exploration where the group from Madrid manifests their ample musical vision. Without giving up their pop identity they brush against the experimental, they welcome a new era with a more direct, energetic sound.
After some changes within the band in May they group went from quintet to quartet Ari, Ana, Alvaro, y Josh without the violin, have a more overall rock and psychedelic sound incorporating new electronic sounds too. Hola A Todo El Mundo or HATEM, are still rocking, they continue to perform and record, on their way to releasing in October 2012 what will be their second LP, “Ultraviolet Catastrophe”, in co-edition with the label Mushroom Pillow, produced and recorded with Luca Petricca and David Unison in Estudios Reno.
This season’s most surprising change in sound will be represented by ten songs dressed in synthesized layers and based on the homonym poem by Roy Tiger Milton. The album is the result of the union of two universes with a unique proposal; to generate magic.
