The ĒTHĘR ensemble was born in 2019 as a musical arts project between musicians of different origins who met while studying at Musikene. Their music draws on a delicate balance of composition and improvisation. With tremendous capacity for adaptation, their own artistic sound and identity, and profound musical sensitivity, this sextet’s compositions propose a wide range of styles including classical, Jazz, contemporary, electronic, rock, pop and traditional music.
Their first studio album, to be called 101, and containing Suite 101 composed by José Ángel Babiano, will be released shortly.
