La ciutat imaginària, 2009
Mar Endins, 2013 (Fresh Sound records)



Singer, guitarist and composer, Rusó Sala was born in Roses, a coastal town in Empordà (Catalunya, Spain). Perhaps it is for this reason that her music sways like rolling waves from the most intimate singer-songwriter music, passing through jazz, to the music of the Mediterranean; from the oral Sephardic tradition to Arab-Andalusian melodies. Rusó Sala combines her solo career with collaboration projects with other talented artists, as Kekko Fornarelli, Giulia Valle or Rosa Zaragoza.Avoiding the typical routes and instead allowing curiosity to guide her, she completed her self-taught education studying modern music at the Taller de Musics de Barcelona, Renaissance singing in the Bellaterra school of music and being trained in Sephardic music, under the tutelage of Rosa Zaragoza.
In 2009, her first album La ciutat imaginària was released, a collection of ten songs in Catalan, where the soul is stripped bare to sing as it wanders freely through the streets of the imagination.
Rusó Sala has proven herself to be an artist of international renown ever since the premiere of her first work in the Auditori Josep Viader (in La Casa de Cultura de Girona), having performed her songs on stage in Argentina, Germany, Italy, Belgium and many more, going as far as being included in the official programming of the Barnasants festival 2011 and Le Cose di Amilcare 2012, two of the most important singer-songwriter's festivals.
In 2013 her second album, Mar Endins, was released. Mar endins is an attempt to preserve Rusò Sala's Catalan background on one side (most of the songs are in Catalan), and contaminate it with other ideas, jazz in this case. By its side, Fornarelli’s jazz is an original and colourful harmony of electronic components, acoustic instruments, modern northern European ideas and neoclassical lyricism, filtered by his warm Mediterranean background.
