December 28, 1959
Ana Torroja is a Spanish vocalist, and was the lead singer of the million-selling trio Mecano. Daughter of a noted engineer, she was born in Madrid on December 28, 1959, and met José María Cano while studying economics at university. The two became good friends, and José María soon introduced Ana to his younger brother Nacho. Upon hearing Ana singing along to his brother's compositions on the guitar, Nacho suggested that the three should form a band, and in 1981 Mecano was born.
