Jarabe de Palo was formed in Barcelona in the mid-’90s, the Latin rock band was the brainchild of guitarist and frontman Pau Dones, along with drummer Alex Tenas, bassist Joan Gene, and drummer Dani Forcada.
The band made its first big splash with its 1996 album La Flaca, the title track from which became the song of the summer in Spain in 1997. Determined not to be a one-hit wonder, Dones led his band through a series of successful releases over the next decade, including Depende (1998), De Vuelta y Vuelta (2001), Grandes Exitos (2003), Un Metro Cuadrado 1m2 (2004), Adelantando (2007), and Orquestra Reciclando (2009). Y Ahora Que Hacemos?, the band’s latest album, came out last year.
