Els Catarres

Els Catarres are a Catalan pop-folk band. The members of Els Catarres are Èric Vergés and Jan Riera Prats from Aiguafreda and Roser Cruells from Centelles. The band is famous for the song Jenifer who came a hit in the summer of 2011 in Catalan Countries.
The band formed towards the end of 2010, starting with small gigs in bars and at la Fira d'Artesania d'Aiguafreda.
Their first E.P was later released, though only available online. Thanks to their most famous song "Jenifer", a song about a prohibited love between a patriotic Catalan man and a "xoni" from Castefa, they rose to fame in 2011. The word xoni is a slang term which in this context refers to young people in Catalunya who are culturally Castilian; it could be said that a xoni is the exact opposite of a patriotic Catalan. By June 2011 the music video for "Jenifer" had received 200,000 views and by mid-September it reached 800,000. By the beginning of October it had reached over a million views and many covers were created of the song. By the summer of 2011, they had over 100 concerts planned around Catalunya. The band only released their music on CD, under the condition that it continued to be available online for free.
