The members of the band Vetusta Morla have been playing for 13 years, since they decided to work in music in 1998 when they were still studying in secondary school in Tres Cantos. Since then, they have found thousands of fans that they attracted with their first album, Un día en el mundo, a day in the world, released in 2008.
They received four UFI awards and three Music awards for the quality of their songs. Now the band has just released its second album, Mapas, composed and recorded after a long tour around Argentina and Mexico.

The name they gave to the band comes from the old but intelligent turtle that appeared i nthe book The NeverEnding Story by Michel Ende.
