There are two artists by the name of Rosana. Rosana Arbelo was born in Lanzarote in the Spanish Canary Islands off the northwestern coast of Africa. At age 20, she moved to Madrid where she studied music and guitar. In 1994, a song she composed won first prize at the Festival de Benidorm. From then on her compositions started to interest many other artists. In 1996, Rosana decided to start singing her own songs and released her first album, Lunas Rotas. The disc reached unexpected popularity, and without trying she turned into an overnight phenomenon.
