Rusó Sala

Singing support

As a child, playing freely in an eclectic fashion, Ruso was creating the foundations of her life’s art: to make music. Song-writing has always been at the center of her life. Her very first song, ‘La Flama‘ written in Budapest in 2006 became a track on her self-produced debut album La Ciutat Imaginària (2009). She has since released three albums: Mar Endins (Freshsound 2013), into which the diverse sounds of the Mediterranean and Nordic Italia are deftly woven; Fil de Coure (Microscopi 2015) recorded with Sardinian guitarist Caterinangela Fadda; and Desirem (Microscopi 2019), in collaboration with Miriam Encinas and Aleix Tobias.

Throughout her career and travels through Argentine, Portugal, Italia, Poland and more, she has moved where curiosity has led her and has drawn from various sources, especially music with Mediterranean roots, paying special attention to the Sephardic heritage (by the hand of Rosa Zaragoza) and the Arabic-Andaluce (with Amine Tilioua), always searching for different sonorities and new ways of approaching both interpretation and composition.

Ruso’s passion for collaboration has included projects with Amine Tilioua, Bente Kahan, Clara Peya, Tanit Navarro, Rosa Zaragoza, Giulia Valle, Sakapatú, Joan Isaac, Ian Sala, as well as the traditional Iberian folk group Coetus.
