Rosana - Spanish Music
She was born to be an artist. With her compositions, Rosana first started to gain the regards of her musician colleagues until persuaded by them, she decided to delight the world with her own voice. Discover the artists who defied the beauty standards of pop singers in the 90s to become a star in Spain and Latin America.
Rosana Arbelo got involved in music at the tender age of five, when her father gave her a guitar as a birthday present. Proving her father’s premonitions right, she started to compose three years after and music became her priority. After moving to Madrid to study, she got involved in the music movement and ended up composing for smashing-hit makers and legends such as Joaquín Sabina, Miguel Rios, and María Dolores Pradera.
Her music, notably romantic and always standing out guitar sounds, captivated her fellow musicians and they persuaded her to aim for a solo career as a singer, making her solo debut album called Lunas Rotas in 1996, getting the singles “El Talisman” and “Sin Miedo,” climbing on the most important Spanish and Latin American charts.
Winner of notable awards such as Revelation Artists in the Ondas Awards –the Spanish Grammys- and the IFPI: Platinum Europe Award for her sales in Europe, Rosana is now on Eurochannel to present the hits of her latest album: ¡Buenos Días, Mundo!
Rosana, born as Rosana Arbelo Gopar in the island of Lanzarote in the Canary Islandsin October 24, 1964, is a Spanish singer and composer. 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," which led to her winning a recording contract with MCA. Her debut album, Lunas Rotas, was released in 1996. 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. In December 2003, Rosana released Marca Registrada, a double-disc album that contained 10 new songs, 12 greatest hits, and two videos. Most recently, she has been on tour in both Spain and Latin America, promoting her album ¡Buenos Días, Mundo!.
• Rosana was accused of plagiarism in a court in Uruguay. According to the case, the singer copied some parts of the traditional Uruguayan song “Uruguay te queremos” for her single “Soñaré.”
