Api Ascaso is an explorative and vibrant soul whose musical abilities reunite together to create expressive, eclectic and soulful music.
Playing music from the age of 5 and receiving full classical training as a pianist, Api’s musical journey has encountered many genres such as Spanish folk, jazz harmonies, African drumming, middle eastern percussion, Hindustani raags, shamanic vibrations and meditative modes. Her fascination for cultures, art, music and rhythm continues influencing her compositions and her genuine improvisation skills will transport you to places out of time and space.
Occupational therapist for children, mother of 2 and eternal nature lover, Api continues exploring the healing properties of sound through her voice and the several instruments that she plays with delicacy. Together with participating and initiating many music collaborations, Api continues to compose and create her solo music, an invitation to encounter your own soul and formulate those responses that are been sought. Nature speaks through her music, unfolding social and environmental issues, as well as offering a sound landscape where you will be inspired to breathe, connect and celebrate life.
Api also offers music workshops called “Music Under One Moon”. A space to dive into the depths of your silence, find your unique sound and connect to the healing properties of your voice.
