Biography

In 2004 several professional musicians came together in Granada to create a music project full of colour and vitality.

Its nine components come from different countries including Spain, Germany and Argentina.

These musicians, with great musical experiences behind them, have evolved musically and personally within this ambitious project. Their compositions are a carefully balanced mix of Afrocuban percussion, brass (bass??) with balcanic touches, and a liking for black music mix all intermingled with its Andalusian character.

The bands career is formed by three recordings which have come to light freely and have been autoedited. 15,000 copies have been sold so far; an enviable and impressive amount considering they do not have any recording company or distributor help.

The three Sonde Nadie albums are:

1. "Sondenadie" 2004/2005: A demo formed by 5 songs in which the band is presented and introduced. With this album the group achieved a far reach on a nation-wide scale.
2. "Concondumio" 2006/2007: Made up of 9 songs/themes that consolidate the band and also lead to gigs in Germany, Switzerland and France. The CD had also been chosen as one of the best records of 2007 in Andalucia & Murcia according to the Mondosonoro's critics (national music magazine).
3. "Ganas de más" 2007/2008: This is an E.P. with 2 songs and a videoclip. It has overtaken the band’s most expected CD, which they are already working on for publishing this year. The band is open to all the possibilities that may come to light because they currently have complete freedom over their music, they have still not agreed to sign any contracts with recording companies or alike.

Today the band is made-up of the same formation as three years ago. They have experienced many trips and adventures together through Europe, sharing stages with bands such us, Macaco, Sargento García, Orishas, Mártires del compás, Eskorzo, etc. and have a great number of supporters that increases with every concert.

Their live-performance is an explosion of dance and energy which spreads from the stages to the lazy corners of the gigs. With their unique style which invites to live and shine, the salsa, reggae, rumba with flavour, the ska, cumbia or the most hidden guaguancó speaks to the audience completing a perfect symbiosis and making their concerts a more mature and personal show every time. This is the SON DE NADIE style.

Discography

Sondenadie (2004):

This is the bands first release. It was recorded in Producciones Peligrosas (Granada) in October 2004. With this release an upbeat and fresh style was born with a mixture of reggae, rumba, Argentine tango, swing, ska and more. All this in just 5 unique songs helped by the collaboration, friendship and support of 3 members from Eskorzo.

Concondumio (2006):

As its own name indicates, this album is a huge cocktail of music, rhythm and variety. In general each song is unique differing from the others. The music is recorded in a process full of joviality that is shown within all the songs. This recording, that is totally different to the previous, complements the band and leaves a wide scope of possibilities for future works at their disposal.

Ganas de más (2007):

This release has been one enormous musical experiment: a cottage in the Alpujarra (south side of Sierra Nevada in Granada) was transformed for three days into a recording studio – in three days, four songs were recorded semi-live. Two of them are available for free and exclusively on our website. Nourished by the music of the Antilles in its most pure state and, of course, mixed with different styles... “Ganas de más” projects the moment of searching and unification of the group and the enthusiasm for future projects.
