Where are the real Spanish Catholic artists?

Cecilia Music - published on 05/26/16

Bono asked for honesty in Christian music…Can we give it to him?

Last week at Ceciliawe published an article: “Bono quiere artistas católicos ‘honestos’, aquí tienes 5”.The article was a response to Bono: Dice haber encontrado “mucha deshonestidad” en el arte cristiano, comparándolo con la cruda y brutalmente honesta emoción de los Salmos.

He wasn’t completely off the mark in his comments. At the same time, we wanted to show him that there already are a number of “real” Christian artists out there, so we made a list of five artists. It was one of the most popular articles at Cecilia to date. It also generated a lot of comments, for example:

¿Por qué la lista es en ingles? Da la impresión de que en español sí es valido ese “comentario” de la falta de honestidad.

Ya los hay, dentro de la música católica en español.

We have received your comments and we want to respond: Of course we believe there are honest Spanish Catholic artists! The article was originally written in English, which is why English-speaking artists were chosen. But now it’s time for a Spanish version.

Who would you put on the list of “real” Spanish Catholic artists, and why? Leave a comment on the post and we will include the best artists on the official Cecilia list. Let’s show Bono that there are “real” Christian artists across the globe, in every language.
