Militancy, ideals and particular and personal ways of thinking have become a rare sight in the world of music, where bands, festivals and brands seem determined to turn music into a clone factory with nothing that differentiates projects from one to the next.
When Los Sara Fontan started playing around 2017, they decided to do it without recording any albums. Never. An anti-industry “quixotesque” move that nevertheless has allowed them to play and surprise hundreds of spectators during their shows (close to 200) throughout Spain, France, Germany, Switzerland, Finland, England or Portugal.
Nobody knew what to expect and the surprise effect amplified what came from the stage: an experimental duo, with just a violin, a keyboard and a drum kit, with an arsenal of pedals and effects and resources that take them from contemporaneity to electronics, from the atmospheric to the unbridled in just a few seconds. Their music is born and dies on stage and that volatility turns each show into a kind of unrepeatable liturgy that remains only in the memory of those who are lucky enough enjoy it. Together they are capable of creating minimalist oases, garages full of noise and oil, beaches where time expands, impassable walls of sound, bases for the rapper that lives inside you, romantic precipices or underwater acrobatics... giving freedom to the listener to unleash its imagination.
Their proposal has not only inhabited small, alternative rock venues or carefully programmed festivals (OOAM in Switzerland Norpas in Finland, Eufònic or AMFest), but has quickly grown and expanded its energies into the world of performing arts.
Their project 4132314 together with Tarta Relena and Cocanha won the Ciutat de Barcelona Award in 2022. They shared stage with BlancaLlum Vidal, a prestigious Catalan poet, in her “La Princesa sou Vós”. With the dancer Sònia Gómez, “Fem una bona pena abans de morir” (2023) and with Amorante “SO”. Their sound designs for theatre “Concrete Matter”, “Songs for the Bitch Witch Women” or original soundtracks such as “Remember my name” (Biznaga de Plata Audience Award - 26 Málaga Film Festival), “Magaluf Ghost Town” (International Competition Golden Alexander Award - Thessaloniki International) “Autodefensa” (Best Series - Series Mania Short Form Competition).
