Meeting in Jerez de la Frontera with Juanma Rodríguez (keyboardist and one of Sherish’s composers). We begin to address the production of what will be the second album of this magnificent Andalusian progressive rock band where they are especially characterized, apart from their originality and forcefulness, the arabesque and Andalusian sounds.
We face this work with great enthusiasm and with the conviction that it will end up being a discazo.
Jaime Padilla (ONZA) and Juan Antonio Vergara (5 LUNAS) meet to study details of the production of ONZA’s new album. We have for sale some merchandising items in our online store https://5lunas.net/producto-categoria/artistas/onza/ and we agreed to reveal on our website the name of the album: “Divergence and convergence”
There are many tracks recorded and I can assure you that we are facing a pleasant and important evolution of the band, for now we will only detract from the name of the album. Little by little we will advance information.
We are pleased to announce that on March 5th, the Andalusian progressive rock band VÁNDALUS has signed a manager contract with us. We have a new record project underway that we will share with you shortly and we are sure that it is only the beginning of many great musical moments.

5 Lunas Producciones will present in a few days the new video clip on the impeccable theme of our group: SHERISH. We are very satisfied with the production of “Escampa” because once again they demonstrate the potential of composition and execution of the band. From here we want to thank the outstanding collaboration of Manuel Martínez (Singer of Medina Azahara) and Manuel Ibañez (Medina Azahara). Jesús Melli (D’Caramelo) has also collaborated with the choirs. And Antonio Ramírez (Casa Andalucía de Leganés) with flamenco guitar.
Another peculiarity that “Escampa” has is that after 47 years, SHERISH reunites two musicians who played together in the first stage of “Retorno” (Juan Antonio Ramirez – guitar and Manuel Martínez – voice), a band that preceded MEDINA AZAHARA.
With them, “Escampa” became even bigger.

It should be noted that the first testimony of this agreement will be reflected in the participation of Storm and Mezquita in the tenth version of the Santiago Art Rock Festival, on February 5 and 6.
Randy López has a new project that will undoubtedly surprise very pleasantly.

We continue to bet on Randy!, In addition, we have done many things together and we will continue to do them.
Mezquita is currently working on composing new songs for his next album. Ideas that were pending recording merge with the new ones to prepare the third studio album of these pioneers of Spanish progressive rock markedly Andalusian.
After the meeting we had with Jaime Padilla, Onza’s guitarist, we advanced two news. The first is that the band’s next album is in the works. The songs are composed by him and Alejandro Pérez (keyboardist) and they tell us that they have given it a new touch but without leaving the usual progressive, more orthodox and with fewer fusions.
The second news is that this work will come out with the 5 Lunas label and it is expected that we will enter the recording studio for March or April 2021, Until that date they will be studying arrangements and outlining each song to get them ready for recording.
We would like to inform all the followers of the group and people interested in our music, that currently and until we can resume the live activity, we are working on new ideas and songs that we hope to show you in the future … Meanwhile, you can enjoy our latest album Legado, published this year and edited by 5 Lunas Producciones.
5 Lunas Producciones and the group ANAIRT arrive in the final phase of the recording of their first album that will be called: “NUESTRO TIEMPO”. We have very important collaborations of legendary musicians of Andalusian rock. You will be very pleasantly surprised because we have made new arrangements in the songs. Guaranteed success.
A fabulous documentary is being shot about the history of the group STORM, a pioneer of hard rock in Spain. Interviews and testimonies of important musicians, producers and journalists, endorse this magnificent film. The director of the project is the filmmaker Jesús Ponce who with an important production team behind is getting a spectacular job. We will continue to provide news about it so that you are informed.
The Jerez group SHERISH and 5 Lunas, finish the recording of their latest single “ESCAMPA”. We have the collaboration and support of well-known musicians of one of the most important bands of Andalusian rock whose names we will reveal later.
“ESCAMPA” is a song very much in the line of the band, where they show their influences and show the forcefulness of their particular sound with their arabesque influences.
