Vetusta Morla is a solid Spanish rock band that stretches the genre. They add sounds and rhythms from outside the rock tradition, but they keep to the core and do not fall into world music.
How they present and manage their work is unconventional, too: their two albums to date, “Un Dia en el Mundo” (2008) and “Mapas” (2011) were both released by Pequeño Salto Mortal, a label they created to bypass the usual channels of the recording industry. Vetusta Morla is an emotional adventure. Their live shows are forceful and intense, their lyrics –and the images they conjure- are abstract and indirect.
Their path has led them to top the charts, win prestigious awards in Spain, and play sold-out tours in Spain, Mexico and Argentina.
