Nicola Cruz

Natural Magic

2Tabs (Coast2c + Michael Bruce)

Nicola Cruz is a producer, musician and DJ born in France, from a South American family. He currently works and lives in Quito, Ecuador, in the heart of the Andes. His career began as a percussionist, which later led him to electronic music. He seeks to include sources of very different nature, in particular the passion for the landscapes of his land, with their cultures, rituals and rhythms. Thus his music radiates an intimate understanding of nature. However, in this mixture always prevails a delicate balance of forces: His music is deeply rhythmic but without neglecting the melody, and despite training in collaboration with artists from different times and places, never stops being intimate.

Through his musical connection between past and present, traditional and modern, he is on a quest to make music with a spiritual component, with consciousness, exploring indigenous cosmology and African region.
