- Molinos de Viento
Molinos de viento "(Spanish for windmills)" is a single from the Spanish
folk metalgroup Mägo de Ozand is their most famous and widely known song. This track belongs to their 1998 album " La Leyenda de la Mancha", but it was released as a single in 2002 from their live album " Fölktergeist" with the single "El Lago".This song mixes simple but strong guitar riffs and a fast-hand guitar solo, the strong "José Andrëa's" vocals and Mohammed's great quality violin.
This song talks about
Don Quixote´s conversation with Sancho Panzaafter the adventure with the windmills (from the title of the song), where Don Quixote attacks the windmills that he believes to be giants. Sancho replied to him that there were no giants, they were merely windmills, but Don Quixote answered that he saw with his soul, heart and imagination, not with his eyes.
In 2006, the group recorded once again the song for their compilation album "The Best Oz". In this version, the band includes Sergio Cisneros' accordion, Fernando Ponce de León´s flutes and Jorge Salán on rhythm guitar, and this time Peri plays the bass guitar.
