Biography

Nicolá Cruz's music invokes the landscapes and rituals of his homeland, Ecuador, a country that is home both to the Andes mountains and the Amazon jungle. His music is an exploration of ancient mythologies and folkloric traditions in a modern setting. Nicola was born in Limoges, France, to Ecuadorian parents. His upbringing was surrounded by a rich musical education in both indigenous traditions and Western theories and from a young age he took to percussion.

From this musical connection between past and present, traditional and modern, an ongoing South American movement has arisen, exploring the local indigenous and Afro-cosmologies through a carefully crafted analogue sound.

In 2012 Nicola collaborated with Nicolas Jaar's now defunct label, Clown & Sunset. Prender el Alma, Nicola's debut album, was released on ZZK Records on October 30th of this year.
