Ana Curra


Ana Curra (La Escorial, Spain, 1958) has been dubbed the “Spanish queen of punk” and is, without a doubt, the most radical, complex face of the ill-named “Movida madrileña” (Madrid Scene) of the 1980s. Her artistic career speaks for itself: an essential part of the musical group Alaska y Los Pegamoides and also of Parálisis Permanente (new wave pop champions and dark counterculture respectively) and the simultaneous project Seres Vacíos. The death of Eduardo Benavente, her partner and inseparable companion in the latter two groups took her along tortuous paths and through abysmal years from which she emerged in the mid-1980s to continue with her career, which she combines with teaching piano in the conservatoire (where she studied when she was young). In recent years she has been busy with the successful tours of El Acto, revisiting the legendary album of Parálisis Permanente, now working with a new group of musicians.
