About me

Coruña, Spain

I am Fer Ruiz. Argentine composer, singer and guitarist. I studied music and graduated from the Manuel de Falla Superior Conservatory. I am currently living in the north of Spain (Coruña). Knowing different types of music, learning and merging them achieving a communion so that they come to be born as songs is a great motivation. My compositions have a lot to do with Argentine culture and its neighboring countries.

Calles vacías

Calles vacías intenta reflejar un estado transitorio y conflictivo por el que atraviesa el ser humano que se cuestiona su existencia cuando un desencuentro disuelve su presente. AyB. Se presenta el personaje. Un transeúnte que navega en la ciudad sin alguien que lo escuche. AyB. Presentación de un otro, alguien que refleja un asunto a resolver. Algo a superar. Palabras que saldar. Una historia que sanar. Instrumental. Tiempo. Trabajos internos. Preguntas y respuestas. Siempre tiempo. B. Aceptación. Contradicción. Respirar y evolucionar.

Ahí va.

The song talks about people who have a passion and a gift but have not yet used or taken advantage of it. It is inspired by a family member who wants to change his life but is not yet encouraged, there is the conflict. Where you can see the struggle with yourself, the resistance and the mixed emotions. From a musical point of view, the conflict can also be seen in the vocal melody inputs. It never rhythmically enters logical or predictable places. The music is a fusion of different ethnic styles between Argentine, Brazilian and African rhythms.

Tierra Hermana (Spanish Language)

The song mixes themes about the beauty of the earth, its wonders with the deep pain that she feels for all that she is going through. This song began as a ‘huayno’, a rhythm from the north of Argentina, then it was fused with the African voice (traditional melodies from Cameroon) to give way to Spanish voices and Brazilian dyes with colors of baiao (music from the north of Brazil).
