Juan Aguirre

Amaral is a music group from Zaragoza, Spain. The band consists of Eva Amaral (vocalist) and Juan Aguirre (guitarist). They write their songs together. Eva Amaral started out as a drummer in another group until she set out with Aguirre to play her own material in 1997. Their musical style is often called pop rock, but it is often fused with Latin beats, folk rock, synthesizers, complex poetic lyrics, and especially traditional Spanish folk. Juan Aguirre was born in San Sebastián (also known as Donostia) in the Guipúzcoa province of Spain. He spent his childhood in the town of Gros and currently resides in Zaragoza, while Eva is from Zaragoza. Amaral is one of the best-selling acts in Spain at the time.
