Las Hijas del Sol Biography (Wikipedia)

Hijas del Sol (Spanish, Daughters of the Sun), namely Piruchi Apo Botupá and Paloma Loribo Apo, are an aunt and niece duo from the island of Bioko in Equatorial Guinea who write, sing, and perform songs in both Bube and Spanish.

They first performed together in 1992 for a competition in el Centro Cultural Hispano Guineano, where they won prizes for best original song and best choreography. That year they also performed for the first time in Spain at both the Expo de Sevilla and in the Festival de la OTI.

Their debut album Sibèba (1995) is a blend of more traditional Bube music and their own compositions, sung in both Bube and Spanish. Sibèba ("aquello que se quiere conseguir"), can be translated as, "a place of salvation reserved for the best" and the album tells of the traditions of both Bube culture and Catholics religion as well as the problems that immigrants encounter in modern-day Spain. fRoots placed the album at No.1 in its annual listing for 1995 and the album was also released throughout Europe, the US, Canada and Japan.
