From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Amaya Uranga Amezaga (born February 18, 1947 in Bilbao, Spain) is a Spanish singer, best known for the fifteen years she spent as a member of the Basque folk/pop sextet Mocedades. She is a cousin of director Pablo Berger.

Biography

Uranga formed Mocedades in 1969 with eight members. After numerous group changes, together with her sister Estibaliz, her brother Roberto, and three other male members, Uranga came second in the 1973 Eurovision Song Contest with the song "Eres Tú," and the band subsequently launched a hugely successful music career in Latin America and Spain.

She was lead singer on many of Mocedades' most successful songs, such as the smash hit "Eres Tú" and "Tómame o Déjame."

Solo career

Uranga left Mocedades in 1984 to pursue a solo career, although she failed to surpass her success in Mocedades. In the mid-1990s Uranga joined a new band called El Consorcio. She has also appeared as herself many times on Spanish-language television shows.
