Guy Mintus (piano, Israel) and Aurora Arteaga (voice, Spain) met each other at a Jazz Festival in Rome back in 2011 and years later re-discovered their musical affinity in New York, when they coincided as students at Manhattan School of Music.
The two musicians share their love for improvisation and a wide and eclectic vision of jazz and music performance. They have in common a strong background in world music and Mediterranean folk from Spain and Israel respectively…the East and West limits of this sea.
Guy has worked with folk musicians from Israel, Greece and Turkey, while Aurora has being exploring as a musician the Iberian folklore, the sephardic music and the Afroperuvian repertoire.
They bring to our ears hints of Middle East and Iberian sonorities, jazz and pop standards arranged in a very personal way, ladino songs, brazilian choro and some original compositions.
