Despertando instrumentos dormidos

  On this occasion, we have the two main protagonists of the project “Waking up sleeping instruments”, the team formed by the violent Carlos Ardura and the musicologist and interpreter Antoni Madueño, with whom we had the pleasure of collaborating from Cuerdas Pulsadas providing strings and frets for the replicas of the sculpted instruments on […]

Cantus Records

The comprehensive renovation project of the website, including all the content, design and online store, was not fully paid under the agreed amount.
