Created in 1976, Acetre is one of the oldest and iconic within the panorama folk of Extremadura groups and their music is essential to understand the trajectory of the folk music of recent years both within their region and in the rest of Spain.
Music creation and renewal on a rich traditional base join his long experience as musicians, to hit a gear instrumental and vocal quality able to open new horizons in the music inspired by traditional roots.
Place of origin, Olivenza (Badajoz) gives them the "bicultural" characteristic of such a spontaneous and simple way that could only be explained knowing born from the essential, from the base of vital learning. Thus, in their interpretations they combine perantones, pindongos, festive tunes or extremeñas dawns, with verdegaios, Portuguese fado or corridiños. A well used combination that results in one of the most exquisite in what we now call tradition renewed sounds.
His artistic philosophy of feel the music as a legacy to which they bring their particular semantics, interpreting it with courage and beauty indisputable vocal with instrumentation that rubs shoulders with subtle harmonies and compositions that receive ancient melodies with a large dose of language experimentation opens up new paths to roots music.
