I want to capture here a small review of my extensive career in the world of music.
The belonging as a member, in my facet of drummer, of some of the most representative bands of what is known as rock Bravú stands out: Os Papaqueixos, Ruxe-Ruxe, Ulträqäns or Tres Trebóns, among others.
Here we can listen to the theme of Os Papaqueixos “Matías o morcego”, music by Manolo Montero and lyrics by me, included in the essential 1999 CD “A lóxica aplastante do Comité de Propaganda” (“The Smashing logic from the committee of propaganda”).

Currently, I simultaneously develop two musical projects: Fran Amil (as a performer and composer), and another one called Chuches Amil (a family music project with a contemporary accent).
In both projects I am the lead voice and I play the drums (in the recording of the albums), in addition to composing and arranging all the songs.
To learn more about the Chuches Amil project, I recommend a visit to our incredible page: www.chuchesamil.com
In 2016 I’ve published a CD with texts by the poet Manuel María called “A voz do vento” (The voice of the wind). The result is an eclectic work that mixes rock, folk, blues and pop. I compose the music for all the songs, recording drums, percussions, keyboards and voice, and I count with the participation of, among other musicians, Paco Cerdeira on guitar; Richi Casás on sax; Aarón Bouzón at EWI 4000; and the voices of Xurxo Souto; Jasper; Paula Romero; Belén Tajes; Antón Díaz; O Leo; M.J. Pérez; and Xosé Antón Bocixa.
Enjoy the song “Aínda teño a esperanza” (I still have Hope), with my voice and that of Belén Tajes.

In 2021 I’ve published “Popsía Vol. I”
With “Popsía” I want to bring classics of Galician lyric of all time to the sensibility of the XXI century. Rhymes of always at current rhythms (rock, pop, soul, etc.). A bunch of poems turned into amazing, danceable, enchanting songs. A discharge of miscegenation that delves into the reality that music knows no borders, neither temporal nor spatial. Immerse yourself and let yourself be carried away towards a time of entertainment and a space of your own that will isolate you from the problems of the world for a moment.
It was a pleasure to bring together an unrepeatable group of musicians and with whom I have the honor of having their talent in most of my albums and live shows: Paco Cerdeira, Richi Casás, Antón Torroncho, Manu Payno, Ruchy de Baio…, and many others that you will have the opportunity to meet at concerts.
Poet or not, I shall sing the Things
That await on the threshold of myself
I will shine torches of words,
Vast inheritance of mine, the world that they gave me
(Xosé María Díaz Castro)
I will iluminate with torchs of words
This is how “Coma brasas” (as flames) sounds, according to the poem by Xosé María Díaz Castro.
