Carpe Diem came into existence in the summer of 2000 and is the fruit of many years of dedication to music by its members. They have performed in various groups of Classical, Traditional, Latin American and Folk music since the nineteen eighties.

Javier Vidal (requinto, guitar and vocals) and Salvador Núñez (guitar and vocals) decide wholeheartedly to embark on a new venture where they put their experience into recovering old Spanish and Latin American songs. All of them are representative of so many different rhythms: Bolero, Tango, Waltz, Cuban Son, Pasodoble, Spanish Song, Habanera, etc. These melodies bring back pleasant memories of moments in the past when music was always present.

Carpe Diem has performed live in all kinds of events the length and breadth of the country, delighting all acoustic music lovers. These events include the cultural programs of many townships, patronal festivals and different commemorations. They have performed in theatres, auditoriums, other centres and in the open air.

They participated in the series “Music in the Castles” in 2003 and 2005. They have also worked in close cooperation with the local Valladolid government for the provincial network of theatres. They collaborate with the regional government of Castile and Leon in their entertainment projects. They are part of the cultural program of several townships and brighten up many a public and private act for different institutions. 

This year Carpe Diem has offered in all their live performances their first recording which is made up of 14 songs from their ample repertoire. This has received excellent reviews from both critics and the general public. The group is currently preparing their second album with their own compositions.
