Singer, multiinstrumentalist, researcher… Héctor Braga is the most multifaceted figure in Asturian music and an artist of wide international projection.
His musical projects, both individually and in band setting are an icon of the celtic and medieval footprint in Asturian culture and an example of universal musical excellence. His artistic accolades start in his infancy. Being 6 years old he already played in a local string band and he shortly started his academic musical education (wich he finished with honours). At 15 he is invited to record as a soloist for the Orquest del Nalón and, at 20, Radio Nacional de España broadcasts his first symphonic opus, “Alborá”, as par of Día Internacional de la Música. He completed superior cello studies (Conservatorio de Oviedo) and holds a degree in ethnomusicology (Conservatorio de Salamanca) and a masters degree in Musics and Media (Universidad de Oviedo).
