Biography

Son de Sol (in English, Sound of the Sun) is a Spanish flamenco-pop band, made up of three sisters (Sole, Esperanza and Lola) from Écija, Seville. The trio was selected to represent Spain in the Eurovision Song Contest 2005, Kiev, although they only obtained the 21st position.

In the national pre-selection contest, broadcast by TVE on the 4 and 5 March 2005, the group’s song Brujería (Witchcraft) secured 24.2% of the vote, placing them ahead of the hot favourites Las Supremas de Móstoles by a margin of just 2.4%. The song was produced by Manuel Ruiz (aka Queco), who was also responsible for The Ketchup Song, a massive international hit.

Due to Spain’s role as one of the leading financial contributors to the Eurovision Song Contest, Son de Sol were one of fourteen entries with a bye directly into the grand final in Kiev on 21 May, in which they also competed against ten qualifiers from the semi-final.
