Vetusta Morla is a Spanish rock band formed in the late 1990s in Madrid (Spain). They work adding sounds and rhythms that come from outside the rock tradition, but keeping the core, not falling into world music. Their live shows are forceful and intense. Their lyrics prefer image suggestion to unequivocal messages and invite the listener to participate actively. Vetusta Morla have two albums to date, "Un Dia en el Mundo" (2008) and "Mapas" (2011), both released by their Pequeño Salto Mortal. It's a label they created to offer themselves a secondary road to bypass the usual channels of the recording industry. Some of their successes are receiving the Gold Record for 'Mapas' and Platinum Record for 'Un día en el mundo', and sold out five consecutive concerts in "La Rivera' which seats 2,500 people.
