is a Basque word that means something like “with the song” or “by song,” and speaks to everything that comes with song—memories, echoes, the life of the music.
The four members of Kantuz, all classically trained, each with parallel influences in flamenco and jazz, met in Chicago, magical city of music and renewal, and our offering to you is a sound that owes as much to this city and this age as it does to far-away mountains and times. As much to the urban grit of the gig in the local dive bar as to the shine and shush of the concert hall. It’s music for the ages. It’s always been here. We just keep playing it.
Thank you for listening.
