Mascarada biography
Mascarada officially appears January 3, 1988, as a result of the joining of three musicians: Juan Mares (keyboards, drums and guitars), Daniel Mares (vocals, percussion and guitars) and Pedro Cordoba (bass, vocals and guitars). Daniel and Juan were members of Llewellyn and later of Galadriel (not the current group Galadriel), while Pedro had ample experience as a session musician and former player with several Rock and Pop bands.

Later on, Fran and Vicente left the group since they wanted a more commercial flavor in Mascarada's music in order to attain a hypothetical commercial success, while Daniel and Juan did not want to surrender and they wanted to continue to make music with no restrictions and external interventions. Thus after careful consideration, Daniel and Juan, made the decision to continue working under the name Mascarada since they were 90% of the creative work and because they believed in what Mascarada had to offer. At the same time, they decided not to include more musicians, in part because of the prior bad experiences but also because they wanted to prove themselves capable of doing all the work.
