Spanish pop duo Estopa, formed by brothers José and David Muñoz, made an impressive debut with their self-titled album in 2001, released by BMG-Ariola.
The group became a top-selling act in less than a year. Playing a mixture of flamenco-pop and rhumba-rock, Estopa were voted Revelation of the Year and Best Spanish Band at the 2000 Amigo Awards. Also in 2001, they released Destrangis and in 2004 the smash hit ¿La Calle Es Tuya?, which followed a cameo appearance on Antonio Mercero's film The 4th Floor. The duo’s following albums (2005’s Voces de Ultrarumba, 2008’s Allenrok, and 2009’s X Anniversarivm) didn’t quite match the success or sales of their first record, but 2011’s 2.0 saw a return to past glories. ~ Drago Bonacich, Rovi
