Duncan Dhu is a Spanish group created in San Sebastián, Spain in 1984. Its original members were Mikel Erentxun, Diego Vasallo and Juan Ramón Viles. Nowadays, it mainly consists of Mikel and Diego.
The group's style was based on an acoustic and simple pop-rock with a touch of rockabilly in great contrast with the more radical rock played in the area at the time. After being signed by Grabaciones Accidentales, S.A. they contributed with two songs to the new bands compilation La única alternativa.
In 1985 the group recorded its first album, Por Tierras Escocesas, and Canciones a year later, both produced by Paco Trinidad. The songs were immediately successful and gave the group big popularity. After even more successful El Grito del Tiempo and Grabaciones Olvidadas it became a duo and recorded the double album Autobiografía, with collaborations by Black and Sam Brown among others. The album was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Latin Performance in 1991. The group later also had several hits such as Esos Ojos Negros. The group finally ceased to exist as a band after the release of "Crepúsculo y Crudités", which was more orchestrated and softer than its older music.
