Talking about Manel means talking about the most important independent musical phenomenon in Spain of the past five years. The success of Manel is directly related to their main distinguishing features: narrative songs that hide a perfectly recognizable universe behind an apparent daily nature. Talent and freshness, without doubt two concepts commonly associated to the band.
Young though mature, Guillem Gisbert (guitar and lead vocals), Roger Padilla (guitar and vocals), Martí Maymó (bass and backing vocals) and Arnau Vallvé (drums and backing vocals), released their debut album (and platinum record), “Els Millors Professors Europeus” in 2008. They were the first band to hit #1 in the Spanish billboards singing in Catalan and became golden record with more than 35.000 units sold. In 2016 they release “Jo Competeixo”, a record with a contemporary pop sound. Manel are on stage to keep up breaking all records!
