Ignacio "Iñaki" Egaña Azpeitia (born 24 October 1948 in Portugalete, Basque Country) is a Spanish musician and songwriter, active since the late 1960s in various rock and blues groups and as a solo artist. He is primarily a bass guitar player and vocalist.


Career



After starting his career with Los Tañidores, releasing a single "Cerrado por balance" in 1967, Egaña passed through a number of bands including Combination Five and Los Snobs. He joined the blues rock group Los Buenos in 1968, who enjoyed a period of commercial success in their native Spain, releasing four singles. Other members included organist Rod Mayall, brother of British blues icon John Mayall.

In 1970, Egaña joined two ex-members of Los Brincos, drummer Fernando Arbex and Colombian guitarist Oscar Lasprilla to form Alacrán, a Latin rock trio following a musical path similar to that of American band Santana. They released one self-titled album, which again was successful in Spain. When Lasprilla moved to England, Egaña and Arbex formed Barrabás, recruiting several other experienced musicians, and went on to have hit singles across Europe and also in the United States.

Arbex removed Egaña from the group after the recording of the Wild Safari album, and Egaña subsequently played bass guitar for Miguel Ríos. He then embarked upon a solo career, working with drummer Kiko Guerrero, releasing a hard rock album Karma (and two singles) in 1974. He also wrote songs for the first album by Spanish singer Juan Camacho. In 1976, Egaña and Guerrero teamed up with guitarist Manuel Rodríguez to form Imán, releasing several albums during the late 1970s.

In 1983, Egaña returned to Barrabás for the recording of the Forbidden album. In 1999, he began his involvement with Dr Blues Band,and continued performing with the current incarnation of Barrabás, as well as with Basque musician Goio Gutiérrez. He spent several years working with singer Juan Pardo, recording three albums, and later recorded an album with Los Mitos. He has also worked with a new group called Caeman including musicians such as Diego Fopiani, Paco Delgado and Blas Lago.

    HOY DESTACAMOS
    La compañera de Atahualpa Yupanqui

    el 21/05/2020

    Fue la mujer que acompañó a Yupanqui durante casi medio siglo. Pese a que era una gran concertista de piano, dejó a un lado su carrera para acompañarlo. Junto a Atahualpa compuso 65 canciones de enorme éxito, como El arriero y Luna Tucumana.

    Hace 28 años, Atahualpa Yupanqui, el máximo exponente del folclore argentino moría en Nimes, Francia, horas después de tener que cancelar un recital. Un virtuoso de la guitarra, un poeta de las cosas simples, un hombre comprometido con sus ideas y con su tierra. Un artista que recién en los últimos años fue merecidamente reconocido por su país.
