In 1967, three young sisters, Amaya, Izaskun and Estibaliz Uranga, formed a vocal trio they called Las Hermanas Uranga. They sang at many locations in Bibao. During this time and during their rehearsals, their brothers and some other friends joined in and the decision was made to form a vocal group they called Voces y guitarras playing and singing mostly folk and spiritual music although the Beatles actually influenced them and their style. 

After performing for more than a year with this group they decided to send a demo cassette to producer Juan Carlos Calderon in Madrid. He took an immediate interest in the group, began working with them. He changed their name to Mocedades. Mocedades was an eight member group then.

Mocedades represented Spain in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1973 with the then hit song Eres Tu.
