The work of Nicola Cruz follows a clear line, deriving its inspiration from his native land: the Andes Cordillera (Crus lives and works in Quito). He takes nourishment from the landscapes, the folklore and characteristic sounds of the Cordillera and the Amazon Forest, which he has skillfully incorporated into seductive electronic sounds in his first album Prendar el Alma, presented on stage at the Sónar Hall.
Crus began his career as a percussionist before quickly succumbing to a passion for electronic music. His music is an original mix of traditions and technologies, which inspire both the exploration of wide open spaces and intimate, personal introspection.
