Sau, (often mistranslated as “ King”), refers to the role of spiritual leader in pre-Christian Rotuman society. The title was neither primogenitary nor held for a lifetime, but rather was cycled through the chiefs of each of Rotuma’s districts.
Sau was a music group from Catalonia, which rose to fame in this area in the 1990s, being among the first groups to write pop music with Catalan lyrics, known as rock català. The band's two main members were Carles Sabater, singer, and Pep Sala, who played guitar and sometimes keyboard. Sabater's death following a concert in 1999 ended the band's existence.
Pep Sala was the composer whilst lyrics where written together with Carles Sabater. No puc deixar de fumar (I cannot stop smoking) was their first album. Edited in 1988 by "Audiovisuals de Sarrià", the album contained the hits "Records d'Irlanda" ("memories of Ireland") and the song "Deprimit" ("Depressed") which would have an appearance on each subsequent album.
Two years later, the album What a night, recorded between London and Barcelona confirmed the status of the group. That disc included Sau's most recognisable singles "Boig per tu" ("Crazy for You") and "El Tren de Mitjanit" ("Midnight Train").
Sau participated in the historic concert on Palau Sant Jordi on June 14, 1991 together with Els Pets, Sopa de Cabra and Sangtraït, at the time, the European record for public attendance at a musical show held in a closed arena with 22,104 attending. Another of their most memorable concerts was held in the bullring La Monumental on July 1992 which was recorded for the album Concert de mitjanit (Midnight Concert)
