Zagala, as a group, emerged in Madrid in 2015. The group members came into contact with the different rhythms, songs and dances of
the Iberian peninsula years earlier, through the music and workshops of Eliseo Parra. They soon felt the urge to investigate the Iberian traditional music especially songs based on dance rhythms such as the jota, seguidilla, charro, fandanguillo, ajechao, sephardic melodies, sevillanas... Zagala uses instruments such as the mandola, guitar, violin or the Iberian pandero cuadrado from Peñaparda or tambourines, spoons and pans and merges them with instruments from other corners of the world such as the sabar, tama or bata drums.

The ZAGALA's music is characterized by its energy and by the fusion of different instruments from many places and periods creating an original sound. Zagala has just released their first studio album and their music has already been played in well-known Spanish folk festivals. Zagala has also performed at WOMEX 2019 in Tampere Finland. Their 2020 tour will include new countries such us Austria, Germany, Norway or Portugal.
