Description

Amaya Uranga

Amaya Uranga Amezaga (born 18 February 1947) is a Spanish singer from Bilbao, 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.

The Uranga’s family has been one of the best Spanish singers worldwide recognized. From young age, she played the guitar and sang in school festivals along with her sisters Izaskum and Estibaliz in a trio called “Las hermanas Uranga”.This group lasted for a while until they joined their brother Roberto, the Blanco brothers Sergio and Rafael, Jose Ipiña and Francisco Panera founding the group “Voces y Guitarras” that would become “Mocedades” in 1969 when Juan Carlos Calderon discovered them and composed a song for them to promote them in the Spanish music market. This song was called “Pange lingua”, whose lyrics are a Christian prayer adapted for singing. With some changes of their members the group Mocedades, where Amaya was the lead singer, participated in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1973 with “Eres tu”, getting a second position. This song, performed by her as the lead singer, is known worldwide, and was followed by some other hits where she was again the lead singer such as “Tomame o dejame” or “Amor de hombre”. In 1984, after many albums released and 15 years of music in Mocedades, she left the group to take a rest.

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.[2] She has also appeared as herself many times on Spanish-language television shows. Amaya performed from a wheelchair in 2011 after breaking her femur.
