Lulacruza is an electronic folk duo operating at the junction of the hypermodern and the ancient. Their music weaves together hypnotic female singing, South American instruments, found sound objects, field recordings and electronic manipulation. Lulacruza is made up of Alejandra Ortiz (Colombia) and Luis Maurette (Argentina). Alejandra is an extraordinary songbird and plays the Colombian cuatro, shruti box, tar and kalimba, while Luis Maurette complements with electronic processing and sequencing, as well as percussion, charango and Amazonian flutes.
