Ana Bejarano, vocalist of the Spanish band Mocedades, dies at 60

Spanish pop music is in mourning since on Sunday, January 2, 2022, the death of the Spanish singer Ana Bejarano was announced. The artist died at the age of 60 in a hospital in the municipality of Vizcaya.

Bejarano, who was a singer in the band Mocedades, lost a health battle related to ailments in the digestive system for which she had been hospitalized last Saturday, December 11, 2021.

The vocalist died at 7:00 a.m. in Spain and her funeral is scheduled for next Monday, January 10 at 7:00 p.m. (also Spain), in the hometown of Bejarano. The data was shared by those close to him.

The representative of Mocedades commented that the first concert of the band in 2022 will be a tribute to Ana Bejarano. In addition, he assured in statements that the group “will take time to recover.”

Bejarano went down in history as part of the successful group Mocedades which was created in 1967. Although the singer joined the project in 1984 as a replacement for the then soloist Amaya Uranga, she managed to give continuity to the vocals with only 24 years.

Javier Garay, a member of the band, shared after the news of the death was published that Mocedades lost “a key figure”. He also said that “Ana Bejerano has been one of the most elegant Basque voices since the 80s.”

Of his talent, he added that “he could sing with a jazz big band as well as accompanied by an acoustic guitar alone. His voice in the soprano tessitura covered many registers ”.

Bejarano’s passage through Mocedades was seen in three productions: Colors (published 1986), We will survive (1987) e Intimately (1992). The artist closed her cycle in the group in 1993 to dedicate herself to other projects, including the band Txarango.

But Bejarano’s great talent led Garay to contact her in 2018 to invite her to rejoin Mocedades. Two years later, in 2021, they took up the “50th Anniversary Tour” and also released the song “Que no se acabe el mundo”.

Months later, Mocedades and Ana Bejarano had arrived in different towns and venues in Spain. In October of last year he would have collected the 2021 Radiolé Special Award “for a whole career” at the Fibes Auditorium in Seville.
