Bio

La Barca de Sua is an artistic proposal which arose from the musical interests of four people from Granada. In September 2004, Raúl Lucas (spanish guitar, composer), Luigi Ramos (electric guitar), Ignacio García (bass) and Inwit Puntotk (percussion) began to play together, as a pastime, in an old house of Granada´s Albaycín, close to the Elvira´s arch.

After a year, with the incorporation of singer Carmen Caballero, the band and its music reached a new level of expectations and they offered their first live performances.
From summer 2006 the band was completed with the recruitment of Emilio Parrilla (clarinet, sax), and the keyboardist Carlos Lopez joined the band on 2010.

´Demo 2006´, the first album from La Barca, was recorded in La Fragua studios (www.lafragua.tk). These six songs gave the first taste of their music to the world.

This album was, from the first moment, fully available for download in their website, www.labarcadesua.org, where they publish not only their music but other artistic works, all under a Creative Commons license.

With this album La Barca de Sua won the 2006 edition of the Espacio Libre festival (a contest promoted by the county council of Granada), and this brought the opportunity of playing at the Festival Zaidín Rock, in September 2006. There they shared stage with first level spanish bands as Celtas Cortos or Sex Museum.
As a pioneer copyleft band, they have been selected to take part in several compilations of CC music, as the ones promoted by El País´ supplement EP3 (Tanto Talento vol.2, with more than 30.000 downloads), or Radio87Mhz.

On July 2007, they published their second work, ´Artilugios para abrir un cuento´, which had a very good reception and a big impact in national press. Questioning the actual musical business scheme, they published a special edition ´authorized for street sale´, which is being distributed by senegalese street sellers with their permission. This second work is also downloadable from their webpage, reaching around a thousand downloads only during the first week.

"Naïf", the band's third album, was published on September 2009. Born as a collaborative artistic production work between La Barca and The Wisemen (Pepe Doughan, Diego Nieto, Pedrológico -Analógica-, Carlos Dingo and Isa García from Red Soul Community), this album shows the stylistic progression of the band, specially with the musical arrangements and the sound evollution.

"La Barca de Sua" is the last work from this band. Recorded in 2010-2011 in "Los Angeles Records" (Granada, Spain) and mixed in Sputnik Studios (Sevilla, Spain), this album recovers some earlier songs and adds new compositions into a brand new record, reaching the highest sound and production quality into the band's history.

Over Raul Lucas´ compositions, their songs are born from the interaction between the different ways each member understands and feels music. The experimentation with modern musical concepts, coming from their varied influences (that range from jazz to rock, through mediterranean and latin-american sounds), makes their sound to be hardly defined in style, but very personal and distinctive.

La Barca de Sua is also an alive artistic concept, a measuring of reality set from alternative perspectives. Their lyrics refer to this quest.
