STORM

At the end of the sixties in the Sevillian neighbourhood of San Jerónimo, when playing rock and wearing long hair was still the object of aggression or arrest, the Storms thrilled the crowd like the Andalusian Deep Purple. From rejection and transgression to receiving an offer from Freddy Mercury for an international tour, a contract with a multinational and appearing on Musical Express, this film will introduce us to this invincible band that deserves a privileged place in the history of music and that formed part of (and in some cases was ahead of) the Andalusian rock movement of Triana, Smash, Alameda, Gualberto and Gong. 50 years after their formation, in 2020 they are recording a new LP.
