Numantia is formed by Laia (voice, handpan and percussions) and Fernando (Arabic oud, gypsy guitar, oriental percussions, viola da gamba & others), whose musical dialog results in a mystical journey throughout various cultures: middle-eastern textures, Celtic melodies, African rhythms, nordic landscapes, gypsy accents, and Persian sounds.
Having crossed many of the paths of the music of the world, these two musicians have taken the task—an anthropological one within a certain extent —of deepening in jungles of unknown sounds and being inspired by, for instance, the music of the Tuareg as much as by French Baroque or Classical Indian music.
As a result of this query, and seeking for the universals of sound, the duet creates vast atmospheres, tells ancient stories, make us travel through epic landscapes and touches the depth with melodies unknown and familiar at the same time.
