Xiquis(Spain):
Xiquis was officially born the first week of 1997 with Germán in the keyboards and Ezequiel in the guitars. After more than a decade, the encounter of this two musicians led to the idea of joining forces with the goal in mind of working to bring to light music that up to that moment had been buried, awaiting the ideal moment to blossom in the hands of a definite project. A project called Xiquis.
German has been working as a solo musician, however he has had some collaborations in several groups, mainly in the venue of alternative music. Ezequiel has been part of several rock groups, as well as his own work as soloist. In spite of their youth, both  have more than 10 years of a very personal musical experimentation. Xiquis music reflects llevanan alternative vision to the universe.  Currently, they have added Juanma Cuadrado in drumms and are in the process of including a bass player and a vocalist to give a more electro-acoustic sound to the band.
