Description: Lulacruza is an electronic folk duo that weaves together hypnotic female singing, South American instruments, found sound objects, field recordings, and electronic manipulation. The duo is made up of Alejandra Ortiz (Colombia), an extraordinary songbird who plays the Colombian cuatro, shruti box, tar and kalimba; and Luis Maurette (Argentina), who adds electronic processing and sequencing as well as percussion, charango, and Amazonian flutes. Together they make music that is hard to classify, but has been called pop, folk, electronic, Latin, ambient, world, new age, ethnic, experimental, and even jazz.
