Sounds of Harmony
Aikyo was born in Granada, Spain, an historic and multicultural place where a lot of artist comes and goes flowing continuously. The combination of the magical instrument invented in 2000 and called Handpan within the powerful and sweet cadence of the Cello strings becomes a high harmonic ambience which projects peace and warm to the listeners.
Ruben from Murcia, Maria from Galicia and Joan from Catalunya, all from opposite corners of Spain, executes the compositions matching love and resonance in once.
Close your eyes to feel the melody, or open them to get hypnotized with their hand movements, just let yourself fly inner and outer.
