Jarabe de Palo is a Latin rock group from Spain led by Pau Donés (1966), singer, songwriter, and guitarist.

Going Independent[edit]

In 2008, the band announced they were going to leave their record company and go independent, founding their own record label TRONCO RECORDS. They changed their name to "Jarabedepalo" because their former record label had the rights to the name.

In 2009 they released a new album, "Orquesta Reciclando" ("Recycling Orchestra"), in which they made new versions of their old hits, including a new song.

In 2011 the album "¿Y Ahora que Hacemos?" was released. In 2014, "Somos" was released.

Awards and collaborations[edit]

The group has received great awards such as Premios de la Música, Premio Ondas, and Grammy nominations. They have collaborated with La Vieja Trova Santiaguera, Antonio Vega, Vico C and Celia Cruz (soundtrack of El milagro de P. Tinto). Pau has also composed tracks for Ricky Martin and starred in a music video with Alanis Morissette. They also collaborated with Italian musicians Jovanotti, Niccolò Fabi and Modà.
