Luz Casal



The Mexican song Piensa en mí, composed in 1937 by Agustín Lara and regularly broadcast on the radio, evokes the Pedro Almodóvar film of which it was the emblem when it was released in 1991: Talons aiguilles. For many, it is also inseparable from the warm, gravelly voice of Luz Casal.

Luz is not the voice of a single hit, but a talented multi-faceted artist. A singer-songwriter, she moves from the rock rhythms of the 1980s to timeless ballads. Discovered in 1980 with a song with a pronounced rock sound, she went on to produce a series of gentle love laments and dynamic pop-rock atmospheres over the following years, before signing her tenth album in 2004, on which her interest in France is more apparent than ever. Indeed, the album’s star track is a cover of Étienne Daho’s Duel au soleil (Un nuevo día brillará), and her rendition of Francis Cabrel’s Octobre (Octubre) received unanimous critical acclaim.

Luz’s songs are often about love, but also about humour and commitment, such as Ecos, from her latest album, dedicated to the Madrid bombings of 11 March 2004.

As well as Spain, Greece and France, Luz Casal also maintains a strong link with South America. Her French tour and her final concert at the Olympia in 2004 left a lasting impression.

In 2007, she was awarded the Gold Medal for Merit in the Fine Arts by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport.
