Escuchando Elefantes are two voices that have come to sound as one. The dynamics and strength they convey to the audience with their songs is due to their passion for busking. The streets are the place where they have been brought up as musicians. They have travelled around Europe playing their music, getting to
share experiences with musicians such as Academy Award winners Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, Paddy Casey, Damien Rice, Bono (U2), Lisa Hannigan and Sinnéad O'Connor, among others. In 2012, they publish their debut album, produced by themselves, with great audience reception and excellent media impact. During this first year, they have played Show & Tell in a great number of European cities, as well as in festivals and venues such as BBK Live or Vicar Street. Their next album will be published in 2014.
