Standing by our commitment to Andorran musicians
The 115 call-on-hold music is the tune “Lee Marvin” by the Andorran rock band Hysteriofunk
The spokesperson for Andorra Telecom, Carles Casadevall, explained the need to use and showcase the country’s musical talent: “The work produced by Andorra’s musicians is of great quality, and we believe that the company can help to disseminate and popularise their work.” Additionally, the company intends to update the song each year: “The idea is for the song to be changed periodically, so that we can grant visibility to the maximum number of Andorran artists.”
Oriol Vilella, the President of ASMA and a member of Hysteriofunk, said they were delighted with Andorra Telecom’s initiative: “From the outset, we really liked the idea, and hopefully, many more companies will follow this example of supporting the country’s musicians.” According to Vilella, every initiative aimed at highlighting the music made in Andorra “is welcome. It’s not easy to get followers, and every action that helps in this regard is important.”
The telecommunications company usually commissions musical themes produced ad hoc in Andorra, but by means of this initiative, it aims to draw attention to works already produced by the country’s artists.
