About Amparanoia

Press and Links

Thinking of Amparanoia means thinking of a musical explosion. A revolutionary musician, an international standard bearer of fusion, she has been praised by the BBC and Cuba-Disco. A well grounded woman, always engaged, she is known for her bravery and joy when she mixes different styles of music, and her lyrics make for a joyous protest. She is the most versatile singer-songwriter that Spain has produced in years.

 

Amparanoia is the musical project of Amparo Sánchez, one of the most characteristic voices of Spain. The paranoia of Amparo is her music, and her records makes us feel as if we can enter into the music of the world. Her critical mind is born from her alert attentive ear and her ever-listening heart. Through her music she expresses her reality as she decides to fight for a more just world.

“Amparanoia are without doubt one of the best live acts around, and approach studio recordings with unfettered passion and pride. If you want to know which direction world music and rock are heading in, this 16-song sampler should definitely be in the collection.”—Chris Moss, BBC
