Biography

Formed by 9 components (From Spain, Venezuela and Chile) Canteca de Macao represents the emergent multiculturalism birthed, raised and developed in the streets. Their musical style can be translated into a mix of rhythms such as rumba, ska, reggae and flamenco that have allowed and inspired the creation of their first album Cachai?. The album generated an unpredictable enthusiasm in the Spanish music scene that has overcome all possible expectations. Moreover, their energetic and young live shows together with the strong social message carried by their songs have become a reference point for all the lovers of what they define as socially conscious music. Still one of the most interesting aspects of this band lies in the fact of being the unique group that fills to capacity 2000 person venues all over Spain without having their album on sale on the music stores. In other words, Canteca de Macao auto-produced their first album Cachai?, they sold and sell thousands of copies in every concert, and visit all the possible festivals in Spain and foreign countries without any help other than their will, their music, energy and their hope of communicating to people that other way of functioning is possible. At the present time Canteca de Macao has achieved for first time in the music history that multinationals such as EMI publishing accept their music under a copyleft license. The rest of the job is done by the public that attends their concerts, which allows them to have a promotion tool free of any commercial labels.
