Alvaro Lafuente belongs to a generation that had easy access to a wealth of knowledge while growing up.
The Benicàssim, Spain-based singer claims that it is difficult to firmly hold onto anything because of the internet's many allusions and inspirations.
Therefore, for Lafuente—who goes by the stage name Guitarricadelafuente—reconstructing a home and identity that he can actually make sense of involves looking back on the customs of the small village where his grandparents lived in Aragon, Spain. Lafuente's debut album, La Cantera, which was published earlier this year, is based on the folklore and bandurria musical history of his family. The CD also uses Lafuente's vocals and melodies to great effect in songs about the Spanish Civil War, '80s Spanish rock and a variety of autotune.
His unique approach, which combines the musical genres of indie, rumba, folk and flamenco, helped him become well-known through the social media platform Instagram. He shared "El conticinio," his debut original song, which was recorded at home using a video game console's microphone, on the platforms of Spotify and Youtube.
He was inspired by the summers he spent in the Aragonese hamlet of his grandmother, Las Cuevas de Caart, to write "Guantanamera," his most popular solo song to date, accumulating more than 12 million copies..
