da Gaia was founded in 1998 by world citizens all born in The Netherlands.  The colorful group composes own  songs fusing flamenco and  Spanish rumba's with a light Arabic flavor .  Songs which breaks frontiers and open eyes.  Nowadays the band borrowed some beautiful passionate fado's.
Music that is hot but also soft and direct, both moving joyful and dramatic.  da Gaia seeks to create a new language through a diversity of rhythms,timbres and melodies. It’s like an adventure on it’s own. It will definitely stay with you long after the music ends.
The beautiful female vocals of Marinet de Wildt , the fiery flamenco guitar-play of Alain Labrie, the pulsating fretless bass of Franklin Heilijgers, the groovy sound of percussionist/singer Anita da C’hi and the uplifting beat of Cajon player/drummer Artur Bont will make sure they will not go unnoticed
Antal Steixner plays cajon if Arthur is not there.
da Gaia recorded 2 CD's, Akinti  and Sin Bordes

Neemt je mee naar  een exotische wereld waarin  flamenco, vette Spaanse rumba’s, fado’s en
