Sureda has its origins in Brussels. But its music has been transformed by experiences in the course of the past years, until arriving where it is now – a fusion of different styles – Mexican, Celtic, Mediterranean and Latin. In their first years, the group functioned as a small ensemble of guitar and voice, appearing regularly in small venues on the local scene (Brussels, Belgium). At the end of the nineties, with the arrival of the musical arranger and composer, Gwenael Micault, the group gained momentum which was reflected in the production of the material for Todo Nada (2005). Since then, Sureda has been traversing borders, appearing at important music festivals and forums around the world (Chile, Brazil, Mexico, Germany, Spain, Holland and France). In Mexico, Sureda was invited by the Veracruz University of Xalapa (2006) through the International Exchange Program Arcos y Puentes (Arches and Bridges). They completed a very successful tour in various venues in the state of Veracruz, sharing the stage with the Mexican Jazz ensemble Orbis Tertius. Since then, and as a result from the success they obtained, and the public recognition, Sureda has been appearing at important functions Internationally up to the present day.
