Kairós Quartet

Kairós is an ethno-jazz band focused on the Mediterranean soundscapes. Driven by Ruben Monteiro’s skill- and colourful compositions for oud and baglama and Carla Costa’s sensitive and tender expression on ney, they present their album as a quartet, with the accompaniment of Christian Marr’s fretless bass and Tiago Santos’ drums. Their music is an original artistic work inspired by ancient cultures and spiritualities from Central Asia to the countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea and the main characters in this work are some of the oldest musical instruments in History.

The performance of the Kairós Quartet "translates" the rhythms of a fascinating Orient into a universal musical language.
