    Circuito Musikagileak: Akartia Trio 

Akartia Trio 

Akartia Trio is a group of musicians made up of Naiara de la Puente, Iñigo Setuain and Stefanie Knorr. For the first time, they blend classical accordion, saxophone, and vocals in this innovative musical ensemble. Akartia Trio draws on its members’ experience in chamber music. Also, the absence of existing compositions has inspired them to develop their own repertoire and contribute to the realm of contemporary music.
