MikiMiki was selected by both audience and jury as the Spain's representative at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest. He will perform the song 'La Venda' (The Blindfold), an infectious and festive number that stands out for its hybrid musical character.
Born in 1996 in Terrassa, Spain, Miki Núñez has learned a lot through practice, although he does not think of himself as a self-taught musician. Miki started studying music as a child because of his parents' dedication to providing him with instruments, even though his home was not particularly musical.
The musical training he had under his belt by the time he was in college helped him gain experience on various talent shows. With those skills, Miki carries an uplifting song like La Venda, with a critical and yet integrating twist, as a proposal for self-knowledge to value one's own gifts. After years of practice, the ardent and versatile performer can deliver an impressively wide musical range.
A musical landscape where Catalan rumba and Latin percussion flow together with warm horn arrangements is not foreign to Miki, given his time as frontman of the cover band Dalton Bang. The 6-piece band, formed of his high school best friends, was profoundly influenced by the booming mestizo Catalan scene, but also took inspiration from soul, ska, reggae and Latin pop. The band spent almost a decade on the roach delivering high energy performances that made the audience feel like they were attending a fiesta. When it was time to join Operación Triunfo, Miki proved he had what it takes!
