Discography

We just record our first independent CD ¨A LOS MÍOS¨ at the STUDIOS EL PELICANO ( Seville). ( Singing to my people)

All of the songs we record are ORIGINAL ( except one traditional flamenco song TANGOS DE GRANÁ) and they are written and composed by Nuria Manglano, lead singer of the band.
Our Cd sounds fresh, alive and interactive all the way ...we pretended to get the same sound and the same energy of a live show, like we are at the stage and record that kind of energy; that´s why we recorded in a session , all playing together without breaks.
