JARABE DE PALO

Jarabe de Palo is a Latin rock group from Spain led by Pau Donés, singer, songwriter, and guitarist. “Jarabe” is a syrup, and is usually used when talking about medicine (cough syrup is “jarabe para la tos”). “Palo” is a stick. The expression means to “cure” someone by giving them a beating – e.g. saying that a child who is acting up needs “jarabe de palo”. The name has a musical double entendre along the lines of drumstick medicine as well as a not so obvious sexual interpretation.
