Spanish "flamenco-rock" band, founded in Seville in 1974. The beginning of the band was Tabaca
, a band founded by Carlos Attias
, Miguel Ríos' bassist, Emilio Souto, singer on "Los Solitarios" and Eduardo Rodriguez, guitarist from Los Payos
. After Attias gave up, Jesús de la Rosa joined as bassist and singer in 1973, forming a trio imitating "Crosby, Stills & Nash", and produced by Johnny Galvao
. Emilio Souto went to join Moncho Alpuente in Desde Santurce A Bilbao Blues Band
, and the rest with Juan José Palacios, "Tele", would found "Triana". On first line-up was also Manuel Molina
and Dolores Montoya
, but they soon quit to settle as a duo, Lole Y Manuel
Tragically, "Triana"'s life ended in 1983, when Jesús de la Rosa died in a car accident. The band disappeared but in the late 90's "Tele" decided to return as "Triana", without Eduardo Rodríguez (who disapproved the idea) and with a group of friends. They released two more albums before his death, in 2002.
But even then the band didn't disappeared: in 2007 Tele's widow (who had the legal rights over the name) gave her approval to a new re-foundation and the band, now in a hard-rock vein, returned to scene.
