Amparanoia (Spain)


Latest album: ‚El Poder de Machin 20 years edition‘ (Warner, March 2017)

Back in the 90’s Amparo Sánchez founded the artist collective ‘Amparanoia‘ which is the most influential band of the thriving mestizo scene among Manu Chao. Back then Spanish and French musicians started to create a radical mix of flamenco, Latin American rumba, ska, hip hop, bossa nova, Cuban boleros, rock, dub and drum’n’bass, Basque folklore and punk, Balkan polka, jazz, soul and reggae. The social and political reason behind the movement also caused Amparo to travel to Mexico around the turn of the millennium to support the Zapatistas’ cause. The major label release of Amparanoias’ album ‘Enchilao’ in 2003 has been a huge success in Germany as well. About 5 years and 700 concerts later Amparanoia played their farewell tour in 2008.

In 2017 it will be the 20th anniversary of the first Amparanoia-album ‘El Poder de Machín’. This first album, recorded in 1997 and produced by Manu Chao, was a milestone in the history of the Spanish alternative ‘mestizo’ world music scene. 20 years after this first album surprised amazingly the Spanish music scene, Amparo Sánchez decided to hit the road again in 2017 with AMPARANOIA.

Moreover, in March 2017 there will be a new Amparanoia-album released by WARNER Spain where an impressive list of friends-artists will record their own version of some of the songs from the 1997-album ‘El Poder de Machin’. Confirmed artists are: Manu Chao, Calexico, Marinah, Chico Trujillo, Txarango, La Pegatina, Zebda, Fermín Muguruza, Joan Garriga, De Pedro, Aterciopelados, Ana Tijoux,…

‘Her music blends everything from rock to ranchera, injected with hip-hop breaks, gypsy violins and crackling electronica, to create an energising clash of ethnic colour and cutting-edge sounds.’ - The Independent
