Music with roots in earth and sky
that seeks to flower in hearts and minds.
The original musical style of Venado Shanti blends reflective, upbeat lyrics with spirited melodies and vibrant guitar flourishes.
Songs that journey to an inner destination
guided by whispers of a world in transformation.
"His interpretative virtuosity and her exact voice offer an original, sensitive, daring, committed and intelligent acoustic alternative...an unmistakable style which is a must-have for musicians, music-lovers and investigators."
(F. Fernando Ruíz-Torres: music critic and investigator)
