Flemish guitar player Myrddin is a son of renowned family De Cauter. As his brothers and sister, Myrddin grew up with gipsyswing, jazz and classical music, but he chose for flamenco when he became fourteen. After learning the basics from his father Koen, he went to Spain to study with some of the flamenco greatest. Novar is a record that underlines Myrddins virtuosity without losing lyrical deepness.

Bio

Myrddin is the youngest son of the famous Belgian multi-instrumentalist Koen De Cauter. Under the wings of his father he learned, at a young age, to play the clarinet (mainly jazz and Gipsy style). At age fourteen he discovered flamenco guitar and was bitten by the richness and originality of this musical culture. After learning the fundaments from his father and studying classical guitar in Belgium he went to Spain to take master-classes by some of the greatest names of flamenco: Manolo Sanlucar, Gerardo Nuñez, Rafaël Riqueni, Enrique De Melchor…

Through the years Myrddin mastered a phenomenal technical virtuosity but his first concern has always been the depth of music. It is probably this variety of interests and influences that created his original and unique style of contemporary flamenco. After beginning as (mainly) a solo artist he released in 2001 his first cd 'Imre' (Culture Records) and became a household name in the flamenco world of Belgium. In 2005 his second album 'Novar' (Munich Records) was released. Since then he's also been arranging a lot and he's making name as a composer of contemporary classical music with already some big projects under his name. This summer Myrddin has gathered around him more than ten world and jazz musicians to fulfill one of his dreams, to create music that doesn't stop. With a huge arsenal of instruments Myrddin builds up his music like a symphony, creating a vibrant atmosphere of sounds and emotions. Words cannot describe it, you have to hear it. Zephyrus is honoured to announce the release of this new work, called Kundalini, late 2009.
