Onda Vaga consists of the ex-members of two bands Michael Mike and Doris. In 2007, at the beautiful beaches of Cabo Polonio in Uruguay, a new alternative rock band was born. The group started performing in Uruguayan bars and clubs.
In May 2007, Onda Vaga moved to Argentine, where they were joined by German Cohen, who used to play with Satellite Kingston. The real creative debut of the band took place in August 2007 in Buenos Aires. They were invited to perform at such places as national radio stations, Chacarerean Theater, Teatro de la Cooperación, and even the city library. Back then, it was easy to book Onda Vaga. They were ready to perform at different events, including private parties, birthdays, and shows. Thanks to the band’s ability to comply with the client’s wishes, their performances were very popular.
In 2008, the band spent a month playing in Castorera. They signed a contract with MudT and released their first studio album Fuerte y Caliente. The dreamy deep lyrics coupled with harmonious music and relaxed rhythm made the LP very popular. The band mixed several music styles, including rumba, reggae, folk, rock, and tango. Onda Vaga’s fans always knew that their songs could help them relax and have a fun time. The Rolling Stones magazine called Fuerte y Caliente the album of the year.
