Preview: Nicola Cruz @ EartH (London; Saturday 22nd June 2019)


This will only be the second time that Nicola Cruz, one of the most sought-after musicians, DJs and producers of the new Latin American music scene, will visit London and delight his many fans in the British capital.

He debuted exactly a year ago at Village Underground after a long, long wait, during which he treated electro, folk, Latin and dance music enthusiasts to his albums, tracks, remixes, collaborations… Everything helped to create a sort of devotion to the Ecuadorian artist, so much so that the show inevitably sold out. And it will no doubt be the same in a few days’ time, when he will play at EartH, presenting his latest release for ZZK Records titled Siku, characterised by a dreamy blend between Andean Step, South American folklore and sounds from South Asia.

He will be supported by Australian psychedelic electro-pop musician Dreems, and no doubt you will stargaze under the Hackney venue’s roof, dancing the show away.

Interview: Q&A with Nicola Cruz – ‘Innovating Tradition’ (December 2018)

French-born, Ecuador-raised composer Nicola Cruz is one peculiar artist. When his first album Prender El Alma came out in 2015, many were left speechless: his intuition to blend warm, bass-fuelled, downtempo beats with traditional Andean melodies resulted in a new kind of music that spoke straight to the heart. While touring around…

Interview: Nicola Cruz (March 2017)

Nicola Cruz is to put it simply, a fantastic musician. In my humble opinion, his music speaks of more than just the seeking of pleasure, but to the pursuit of life. His tracks offer themselves to the human condition, that we are born and die alone, and in between, we’re…
