Artist Profiles: Espliego

Espliego was formed by two singer-songwriters, Pedro Chaparro (Valdepeñas, Ciudad Real) and José Ignacio Cordero (Talavera de la Reina, Toledo) from the Castille-La Mancha region of Spain, the land of Don Quixote. Throughout the years the band grew and added new musicians, featuring three vocalists, two male and one female.

What characterized the group was its interest in the music and poetry of the Cervantes era. Espliego combined Early Music with Manchego folk and folk-rock. The instruments used ranged from traditional Spanish instruments such as guitar, vihuela and flutes, combined with Irish uilleann pipes, world percussion and electric guitar.
