MERU is a music project born from deep Portuguese Soul and Consciousness and open to the world.

It brings together acoustic instruments from various eras and ethnicities in a project of world music with original compositions with multicultural characteristics.

An imaginary and timeless journey, created by instruments that manifest, through the musicians, the sound from different cultures, traditions and musical styles, in a voyage around the world, From Africa To Asia, Oceania and the Americas, always with Portugal as the base home and inspiration. In live performances, a specific journey takes place where characters and stories manifest through the music and a constant flow of improvisation emerges, inspired from the energy of the audience and surrounding context and brings a very unique experience to the listener.

Featuring the Sitar, the traditional Indian instrument, the Portuguese Guitar from the Fado tradicional national song, the nGoni, stringed harp from West Africa, the Didgeridoo from Australian Aboriginal origins (oldest wind instrument of Humanity) and the Handpan, an harmonic percussion instrument created in the XXI century and also several traditional percussion instruments like the Djembé, Calabassa, Adufe (portuguese framedrum), cymbals and rainsticks.
