Músicas del Mundo para Trio de Guitarras.
ZUM is an Argentinean-Japanese guitar trio, specialized in the
use of steel String
acoustic guitars tuned to the so-called New Standard Tuning, which gives
characteristic sound a much wider sonic range.
ZUM's main driving force may very well be rooted in the Argentinian tradition
Tango and folklore; however, their diverse musical escapades serve as
their versatility and virtuosity. Typically, one may hear Piazzola side
by side with Bartók,
The Beatles or Stevie Wonder, this without losing the inner coherence
identity of the group. In this sense ZUM is a delight to experience live!
The trio met for the first time in August 1995, during a Guitar Craft
Seminar in West
Virginia/USA, after which they collaborated on various projects, recording
through Europe, America and Japan.
Since January 2002 they have also been working as part of the legendary
ensemble "The League of Crafty Guitarists" with whom they toured
with Robert Fripp during 2006 and 2007.
It was from these common activities and experiences that ZUM emerged and
Tours through Germany, Spain, Italy, Chez Republic, Andorra, Japan, USA,
