The Sparkles are a band from Barcelona who have been spreading joy and excellence everywhere they go since 2009. Led by three female voices, they stand out as a solid line-up, with an impeccable, original, fun sound: one of the best on the retro-Americana scene in this country. Their style evokes that of female groups and soloists of the 1950s and ‘60s: The Crystals, The Ronettes, Lesley Gore, The Marvelettes, Martha & The Vandellas and a long list of others. The repertoire is an excellent selection of hits and rarities from that era, spanning genres such as doo-wop, r ‘n’ b, frat-rock, surf and early-soul. On top of all this, their concerts are beautifully staged and the transmit unstoppable energy from the very start. In their prolific career, The Sparkles have played at festivals of 1950s and ‘60s music in Spain and abroad and recorded albums such as ‘Songs Girls Taught Us’ (2022), with a fresh, danceable sound that delights everyone who listens. The Sparkles always make an impression. To know them is to love them.
