Debut album by Myrddin & Imre
(pre-orders ship out on 24/05/2023)
Myrddin De Cauter, the youngest son of multi-instrumentalist musician Koen De Cauter, is a phenomenon in the world of contemporary music. As a teenager, he discovered the richness and originality of the flamenco guitar. To further develop the subtleties in his already masterful playing, he went to Spain to take lessons with some of the masters of flamenco guitar: Gerardo Nuñez, Manolo Sanlucar, …His technical virtuosity, taste for experimentation and deep lyrical sensibility merge into a unique musical world. It turns out that Myrddin is not just a flamenco guitarist, but an exceptional multifaceted talent. This talent, passed down through many generations, now expresses itself again in Myrddin’s daughter Imre. At only four years old, she received her first cello. In 2018, she made her debut together with her father at the Gent Jazz Festival. Now five years later, in their debut album ‘Zwaluwe’, together they take on a journey that finds its origin in Myrddin’s written compositions. Imre knows and feels the music of her virtuoso father like no other. She complements him in a sensitive, cutting and unctuous way. Making a perfect blend of sharp and soft. The album was recorded in a small chapel in remote Valouse, a village in the Drome region of southern France.
“Imagine… Being able to play music together with such ease, joy, rhythm and harmony as the swallows spiral through the air. It is a dream for life to be able to achieve something so beautiful.” – Myrddin
