Zambra Del Moro is born in 2015, out of the friendship and previous endeavours of two musicians from Porto, each one with its specialty and genre of interest. Ferrer Leandro
(www.ferrerleandro.tk) with his passion for flamenco guitar and me with all the arabic timbres and influences, together we do our best at merging these into our music.
Without the goal of reproducing tradition, our mission is primordially to compose original music. As Ferrer usually says, his is not a flamenco that "flows in the blood", fueled by the lifestyle and the emotions of those who are born
into it. Instead, his flamenco and my passion for middle eastern modal music, were created and live in our dreams. Not that we haven't done our fair share of travelling in order to understand the music and places where it has grown,
it's just that the distance, both geographical and musical, allows a different number of influences to sink in, and at some point it becomes impossible to follow a single musical path.
Since 2016 we've been focusing on developing a solid repertoire of original compositions and versions of classic pieces, and we've been constantly playing local gigs in the north of Portugal.
