Òwix is a folk rock style music group from the south of the Valencian Community originating from Callosa d'en Sarrià (Alicante).

History [1]

Òwix's journey began in 1994, when they won the first prize in the music contest Tirant de Rock, organized by Acció Cultural del País Valencià in San Vicente del Raspeig / Sant Vicent del Raspeig (Alicante, Spain). They stand out with a version of the popular song La manta al coll. [2] In addition, as part of the award, they published a shared album with the winning groups of the contest, called Tirant de Rock: Òwix, Obrint Pas, Anselmos and The Jam Ones.

Their first album, La senda del cielo, was recorded in Benidorm in 1995, at the Hollywood studios. It was released in 24-track analogue format by Studer, by the Callosa d'en Sarrià City Council and produced by Ovidio López. [3] Vicent Torrent (Al Tall) and Lluís el Sifoner participated in the presentation of the album. At the Valencia concert on October 9th, 1995, Owix shared the poster with Ovidi Montllor, Al Tall (band), Carraixet, Paco Muñoz, Urbalia Rurana, Dropo and Lluís Miquel.

The second stage of Òwix began in 2000, when Ximo Guardiola and Pere Samblas remained in the formation and Eugènia Saval and Tòfol Pla were added. The following year they released the second album, Al País Valencià (Vaso Music 2001) [4] and it was presented by the main festivals in Catalan of the moment: Acampada Jove in Arbúcies (Girona, Spain) [5] , Senglar Rock in Montblanc (Tarragona, Spain) and the local festivities of the neighbourhood Barrio de Gràcia in Barcelona (Spain). [6][7] In 2002 the voice and viola Antonella Llorens joined the group and, in 2003, OWIX reached the final of the Sona9 Competition in the section singer-songwriter (under the name of Ximo Guardiola), held in Figueres and organized by TV3 and Catalunya Ràdio. [8]

The third album, Bullirà el mar, was released in 2006 and was presented live on Radio9|Ràdio 9, on Amàlia Garrigós's "Alta Fidelitat" program. By then, the group already had the new incorporations of Sam Sanchis, Mariquita Soler, Inma Ortuño, Oscar Guiu and Albert Saval, as well as the collaboration of Miquel Gil. [9] The presentation in Callosa d'en Sarrià was in the concert hall " the Aixarà". Bullirà el mar is a tribute album to the song, which highlights the version of "la Estaca" by Llach and "Estimo Ovidi" dedicated to Ovidi Montllor.

Along with Capicua Produccions, in 2009 the CD + DVD Òwix 15 anys was released as a two-hour-live concert at Palau Altea, plus a documentary. [10] [11] Between 2010 and 2011, Òwix performed various concerts, such as in the prison of Villena, a live acoustic concert on Radio 9, appearances on El 33 Nydia, a concert at the Palau Ducal in Gandia, an appearance on the show Encontres on Canal 9, or a tribute concert to Ovidi Montllor in Alcoy, together with presentations of the compilation DVD in the main auditoriums where it was recorded, [12] concluding in 2011 at the Palau Altea with Òwix accompanied by the band Banda de Música Primitiva and Colla de Dolçainers el Pinyol from Callosa d'en Sarrià, with almost one hundred musicians on stage. In addition, Ximo Guardiola composed a "Concerto for Electric Guitar and Organ" and Òwix acts in favor of the restoration of the organ of Callosa (17th century).

At the end of 2013, TriologiOWIX is presented: three live concerts, three different styles.

  • OWIX in acoustic. Live at the Palau Altea, reminiscent of the SimfOwix 2009 tour, but acoustic.
  • OWIX rock at Taska l'Albarda de Polop.
  • OWIX + Banda Primitiva de Callosa d'en Sarrià. Live at Palau Altea, accompanied by Banda de Callosa, conducted by J.S. Berenguer Domènech (founding member of Òwix). The versions of Muixeranga, Manta al Coll by Òwix and Al País Valencià stand out.The vindictive pasodoble of the master Bernabé Sanchis Sanz "Detectiu Terratràmol" was also performed.

Òwix and documentaries

Òwix's music can be found in several documentaries and short films, such as the song “Història de Joglars”, which appears in Samuel Sebastián's [13] "Mur Viu” or" Rere les passes del Rei ", by Eduard Torres.
