Talented and award-winning Spanish singer/songwriter Rosana Arbelo got involved in music after getting her first guitar at the age of five and composing her first song three years later.
The artist's passion for music grew in her student years at a local Catholic school, and she later moved to Madrid to study music. Before going out on her own, Arbelo composed songs for local celebrities such as Joaquín Sabina
, Miguel Rios
, and María Dolores Pradera
. She released her solo debut album, Lunas Rotas, in 1996, using only her first name. The album produced the singles "El Talisman" and "Sin Miedo," which climbed the Spanish charts. That same year, Rosana achieved two Onda Awards for Best Album and Revelation of the Year. In addition, "El Talisman" and "Lunas Rotas" were chosen by director Quentin Tarantino for the soundtrack to his movie Curled. In 1998, Rosana's Luna Nueva was released. The next three years saw her writing material for other artists, but in 2001 she returned with her much-anticipated eponymous third outing, which utilized the complex rhythms of her Canary Islands birthplace as its foundation. Marca Registrada, a double-disc LP consisting of 12 of her greatest hits, ten brand new songs, and a pair of videos, surfaced in 2003, with her fourth studio long-player, Magia, Rosana introducing a more muscular, pop/rock-oriented sound, a style she continued to explore on 2011's 8 Lunas. In 2016, Rosana released the deeply personal En la Memoria de la Pel, which coincided with her 20th anniversary as a recording artist. ~ Drago Bonacich, Rovi
