Sander Clasen & The Band of Sand is a result of knowing each other before. 5 years playing gigs as a singer-songwriter as Sander Clasen with accompaniment of the virtuous guitar of Laly Rodriguez ( Sueño Eterno). Then we formed a hard rock band named ‘Shaman Klan’ with the bass of Javi Martin ( Ojos de Brujo) and drums Marti Soler.

The sound was a mix of influences such as Pearl Jam, Sound Garden, Jimmy Hendrix or Foo Fighters… although we have that explosive and powerful mystic sound we saw that there was more demand for our more acoustic and personal songs. That’s how Sander Clasen and The Band of Sand was created.
