“Way back to the roots. In my quest to deepen and to learn about Iberian music I went to Toledo to the lessons by Vigüela and, when they proposed me to work with them, it was curious to make a trip back to the roots, moving away from the mountain and, at the same time, to get closer and to understand better what I had learnt from my family with my father and my grandfather, to learn music from other regions of Spain and to get deeper into the singing, the phrasing, my relationship with lute… It is been a pleasure to make this with my mates, to investigate in the music and the styles from other regions and to provide the resources we already had to that we are getting in this path“.
Mari Nieto. Voice and percussions. Native from El Carpio de Tajo.
“To be part of Vigüela means a lot to me. It is not only a pleasure: it is also a honor. It has given me the chance to discover, enjoy and learn from “the best ones””.
