Spanish pop is experiencing (enjoying) a profound generational change that tonight has been recognized in the Independent Music Awards (MIN Awards).

Delaporte have received the awards Best Artist, Electronic Recording and Video of the year 2020, when they published their second album, Las monttaas. This mutant-style album is based on pop, introduces sounds and electronic music productions of a very different kind and contains a wide range of influences in which Latin folklore and rap also fit. That concept so open and far from aesthetic prejudices is what characterizes a new generation of pop artists that have spread-happily- throughout Spain, from the independent music industry, and that generation was the one that was generally awarded last night’s awards.

The other protagonist of the gala has been Rigoberta Bandini, recognized with the awards for Best Emerging Artist and Best Song of the Year, for In Spain we call it soledad. The Catalan artist, who has not yet published any album and who began releasing songs in 2020, began her career as a dubbing and theater actress, but her emergence in music has caused a small gale in the indie scene (the extent of Its virality may be due to the fact that today a new song was published, which will be used for the advertisement of a well-known beer brand).

Also part of this new wave of pop with a feminine message is the group Gins, which received the award for Best Pop Album (for Sleep when I die).
