Biography

Brothers David and José Muñoz enjoyed singing and playing their guitars together from an early age. In 1999, they formed a band in their hometown of Cornellà and began releasing records, beginning with the self-titled album 'Estopa' in 2001. Within a year their fun flamenco style had attracted many fans and they became a top-selling band, every one of their albums reaching number one in the Spanish Albums Chart. Their second album 'Destrangis', was also released in 2001 and then following a cameo appearance in the 2003 film 'The 4th Floor' directed by Antonio Mercero, they released the album '¿La Calle Es Tuya?' (2004).

In 2005, Estopa released their fourth album 'Voces de Ultrarumba'. This sold 200,000 copies on the first day of its release and stayed in the Spanish Albums Chart for 67 weeks, including four weeks at number one. In 2008, the album 'Allenrok' was released, followed in 2009 by 'X Anniversarivm' which spent 86 weeks in the Spanish Albums Chart, including one week at number one. The album was released to coincide with their tenth anniversary and included remixes and re-releases of some of their more popular songs. This led to their first number one single in 2010 with the song 'El Run Run' which featured Spanish singer Rosario.

Estopa's success continued with the release of album '2.0' in 2011. The album peaked at number one, and remained in the Spanish Albums Chart for the whole of 2012, spending 56 weeks in the charts in total. Their next album, 'Esto Es Estopa' (2014) also reached number one and spent several months in the top ten. This was followed by 'Rumba a lo Desconocido' in 2015, which spent 56 weeks in the Spanish Albums Chart, including three weeks at number one.

The band's second number one single came in 2018, with the song 'Vivir' with Spanish singer Rozalén, which featured on her 2018 album 'Cerrando Puntos Suspensivos'. In 2019 the band released 'Fuego' as a single and then an album of the same name which coincided with a national tour. They remain one of the most successful pop groups in Spanish history.
