Groovement is pleased to welcome a selection from Iñigo Ugarteburu into our podcast collection. Iñigo resides in London (before that, Manchester for a time – but San Sebastian was previously home): his compositions tread genres hazily, a hypnotic concoction that conjures up folk jazz stylings incorporating field recordings and acoustic bliss. His first album (‘Back&Forth’ on his own label Talo) and follow up EPs have seen solid support from the likes of Tom Ravenscroft and Cerys Matthews.
His musical tastes are wide-reaching, with a particular penchant for African music of various styles – as heard on this Groovement episode.
