A b o u t   U s

Numantia is a duet conformed by Laia (voice, handpan and percussions) and Fernando (Arabic oud, gypsy guitar, oriental percussions, viola da gamba & others), whose musical dialog results in a mystical journey throughout various cultures: middle-eastern textures, Celtic melodies, African rhythms, nordic landscapes, gypsy accents and Persian sounds amongst many others. Having crossed many of the paths of the music of the world, this two musicians have taken the task - an anthropological one within a certain extent - of deepening in jungles of unknown sounds and being inspired by, for an instance, the music of the Tuareg as much as by French Baroque or by Classical Indian music. 


As a result of this query, and seeking for the universals of sound, the duet creates vast atmospheres, tells ancient stories, make us travel through epic landscapes and touches the depth with melodies unknown and familiar at the same time.

Laia started her musical career as a classical flute player and as a singer, participating for over a decade in diverse orchestras for classical and antique music. Driven by the need to explore a wider world, she got immersed in World Music, mainly Latin. She discovered the handpan relatively recently and found in it an instrument which allowed her to explore harmony, melody and percussion simultaneously, developing a technique of her own that results in a strongly rhythmic polyphonic landscape.


Fernando is a composer, a multi-instrumentalist and a singer. He has written a thesis on the Philosophy of Music and has been searching for years throughout the diversity and complexity of several traditions to find the styles, techniques and languages that better suit his expressivity. He mainly plays Oud, Guitar (Flamenco, Manouche & Electric) and Oriental Percussions (Bendir, Tombak & Darbuka), but also Bouzouki, Irish Whistle, Viola da Gamba, Accordion and Piano.
