Verde Prato + Maestro Espada

Verde Prato + Maestro Espada

Verde Prato sings in the Basque language (Euskera), evoking the Basque oral tradition in her songs and bringing the past into the future. Popular songs and liturgical chants in a voice and electronic music format, an (im)possible cross between Mazzy Star or Nico and Mikel Laboa. An exponent of a new generation of young artists who are rekindling Basque traditional music, taking it to unsuspected and therefore surprising and exciting heights, Verde Prato places great value on the presence of the voice in the popular songbook of many cultures, something that takes on special importance in her compositions.

Just like someone who has been away from home for a long time and now returns with the curious gaze of a visitor, Murcian-born brothers Alejandro and Víctor Hernández have immersed themselves in the musical tradition of their native land to create Maestro Espada, an exciting musical project in which analogue synthesizers meld with castanets and lutes, picking up the local accent of the cuadrillas (bands of traditional musicians) to show that electronic music can also be folk music.
