Rosana 2018 U.S. tour in Washington, D.C.
Rosana, one of the most recognized Spanish artists, presents her latest album “En la memoria de la piel” (“In the Memory of the Skin”) as an acoustic set at the Howard Theatre in Washington, D.C.
With 9 albums published and more than 10 million records sold worldwide, Rosana has become one of the most recognized artists in the world. She became known in 1996 with her album Lunas Rotas that broke sales records in more than 30 countries.
Rosana was born on the island of Lanzarote in the Canary Islands, where she was raised. She was the youngest of a family of eight children. Rosana was given her first guitar at the age of five years old and wrote her first song when she was eight. She began composing music after moving to Madrid in the early 1980s. She won first place in Benidorm’s music festival with her song Fuego y Miel (Fire and Honey), which led to her winning a recording contract with MCA. Before pursuing a solo career, she wrote songs for other musicians, including Joaquín Sabina, Miguel Ríos, and María Dolores Pradera.
Her debut album, Lunas Rotas, was released in 1996. The soundtrack for the 1996 movie Curdled featured her songs Lunas Rotas and El Talismán, exposing her to an international audience. Her second album, Luna Nueva, was released in 1998 and had a more mature and deep sound, but maintained the natural and smooth sentiments that characterize the artist. After three years, during which she wrote songs for other artists, her third album, Rosana, was released in 2001. Its sounds explored the rhythms of her birthplace in the Canary Islands.
Her latest studio album, En la Memoria de la Piel, was released on November 4, 2016, by Warner Music España. Her En la memoria de la piel (In the Memory of the Skin) tour took her in 2017 to more than 30 countries and 3 continents. This album shows all facets of Rosana, from the most electric sound that influences her latest works, to the emotion-filled acoustic Rosana of Lunas Rotas. In this show, Rosana performs her latest album En la memoria de la piel in an acoustic version.
