What could we say about this year? A great anniversary year, a special year… That have become even more special, if that was posible. Yesterday night we had the great honor of being awarded with the Teide de Oro award given by Radio Club Tenerife each year, an award that bring us an incredible joy. Through the past 33 years these awards had been given to leading figures and professionals of the island, and to receive an honor like this fill us with happiness.

It was impossible to not get excited during the whole gala leaded by Puchi Méndez and Pedro Rodríguez at the Adán Martín auditorium, filled with good vibrations and also good music; but receiving a recognition like this worths every year of hard work until today. The biggest surprise of the night was to get a prize like this from a member of Marco & Maria’s family like Vanesa Cabeza and the president of the Cabildo de Tenerife, his excellency Mr. Carlos Alonso

If there’s something that you can’t imagine when you start from the bottom, in a little studio working with lots of love and effort, is that there will be a day like this when all the love you’ve spreaded with your creations come back to you in this special way, this honor that had been given to us, a Teide de Oro award. And receiving it in an unforgettable night like this brought great emotions to us, even more since we were surrounded by the Marco & María family, something that we couldn’t ever imagine.
