Amarok (wolf in Eskimo) came into being at the beginning of 1990 as a product of the creative efforts of Robert Santamaría and Lídia Cerón. Robert, who holds a PhD in Paleontology and who is the main composer of the group, has a long history of multimedia compositions on electronic keyboards and piano, centered on themes involving nature and scientific subjects. Lídia, the vocalist, had a classical background and training in singing, and was a member of the Independent University of Barcelona Chorus, among others.
In the summer of 2002, the group's fifth album "Mujer Luna" (Moon Woman) was released on the Tecnosaga label in Spain and the Luna Negra label in Latin America. "Moon Woman" is a work in which progressive rock and Mediterranean influences are more readily apparent than in previous albums. Between autumn of 2002 and spring 2003, the band has presented the music of "Mujer Luna" on tour. As of now they have performed in Barcelona, Madrid (Suristán and Lamala), and at the well-known international rock festival BajaProg in Mexicali, Baja California, México.
Now in 2007 the band is back with a new album, "Sol de Medianoche" that is once again breaking new ground. [Prog Rock Records website] ZNR adds: This is one of the most purely beautiful & melodic albums we have heard for a long time! Also beautifully recorded this music surrounds the listener with a density of sound that is lacking in most contemporary productions!
