Susana Alva, G. Vial Ridgway and Raul Osuna, collected their belongings at their native Malaga and moved to Madrid to look for an opportunity. There they met Alfredo Baone, with whom they completed the formation of the band. It was five years with very little in the pocket and a lot in their hearts, doing gigs in various places while knocking at the doors of record companies with their demo. Until finally the multinational Universal saw in them the potential of the XXI century Spanish pop. So in 2001 their first album “Efecto Mariposa” came out and made it clear who they were and what they wanted. They published three singles: “Sola” (Alone), “Inocencia” (Innocence) and “Cuerpo con cuerpo” (Body to body). Efecto Mariposa surprised everybody of us when first hearing them by their freshness, personality and above all, by their live performance, touring all over Spain leaving their name as a mark of identity. The Butterfly Effect (which is “efecto mariposa” in English) is a mathematical theory that goes about the connection between two seemingly unrelated facts and opposite consequences. It says if, for example, a butterfly flapped its wings in Japan, this could cause a large tornado at the other end of the world. Everything is connected and what is apparently a totally innocent move, can have unimaginable consequences. Something like this actually happened in Mexico. The song “Sola” was played in Mexico and caused a true tornado. The band has crossed the Atlantic three times since going to Mexico, where they managed to stay more than four months among the most played groups in radio.
