Cafe' del Mar

Part of watching the sunset is the music, described as ambient, easy listening music. The bar originally sold their own tapes of the music but a series of Café del Mar CDs have been sold. As of 2006, there are 13 volumes, numerous side compilations, plus 2 albums commemorating the 20th and 25th Anniversary. A total of about 9 million albums have been sold worldwide.
The original first six volumes' tracklists were selected by José Padilla, a DJ then commonly found at the Café del Mar.

In the summer of 2005 Café del Mar celebrated their 25th Anniversary with a special album and a festival on a big stage in front of the sea. Four Café del Mar artists were invited to play live at the festival: D.A.B. (Spain), Tom Oliver (Germany, also on the 25th Anniversary CD), Paco Fernandez (Spain) and La Caina (France).

The series has since expanded with a number of spin-off albums.
