This Spanish trio makes socially conscious music under lockdown

Posted on

Their songs incorporate a range of genres: from trap to flamenco to pop. Canadian singer Michael Bublé even covered one of their songs.

“They asked us for the rights of that song,” said Stroink of their experience with Bublé’s manager. “And that’s when we realized we didn’t have any of our songs copywritten. They were in this legal gray zone that is Instagram.”

That’s when the group finally registered their songs and hired a manager. It was uncharted territory for them — they had never had to deal with the bureaucracy of the music industry, they said, and they were forced to figure it out in only a few weeks’ time.
