In 1998, Fito Cabrales—member of the popular Spanish Nineties rock band Platero y tú—formed Fito & Fitipaldis as a creative outlet to make a different kind of music from that of his original group. Platero y tú parted ways in 2001, leaving Cabrales to turn his full attention to what started out as a side project. The result was a band which has become something of a household name in Spain, with seven platinum-certified albums under their belt, three of which have hit the top spot in the Spanish charts. Originally from Bilbao, Fito Cabrales fronts the band, which takes an easy-going approach to making ‘emotional, complex-free music’, bringing together a fusion of elements such as soul, pop, swing, flamenco and Latin jazz. Hitting the road once more as part of their Huyendo conmigo de mí tour, the group arrives in Barcelona this September, ready to thrill audiences with an unforgettable night of rock.
