Music Meeting SESSIONS - Fuensanta Méndez and Nawras Altaky

Music Meeting SESSIONS - Fuensanta Méndez and Nawras Altaky

Fuensanta Méndez (double bass, vocals) & Nawras Altaky (ud, vocals) The music of Mexican double bassist and singer Fuensanta Méndez is that of someone who gives it absolutely everything, without any reservations. Born and raised in the moist forest of Veracruz, her bass playing, as relaxed as it is efficient, is the guide for a musical journey which destination nobody knows, but everybody clearly wants to come along for. Singer and ud player Nawras Altaky, who fled his Syrian homeland during the civil war, wears his heart on his sleeve. The beauty of his music and the emotion in his voice can be understood everywhere despite language barriers. The chemistry of Fuensanta and Nawras’ dreamy, melancholic singing and their harmonising string instruments will bring warmth to your ears.
