Mursego is Maite Arroitajauregi. Mursego is bat in Portuguese. Mursego makes music with a cello, a pedal loop station, a whistle, Chinese cymbals, slide whistle, tambourine,ukelele, keyboard with colourful lights, autoharp, rhymes, claps, improvisation and voice. Maite has been a cellist in many bands in the Basque Country: Anari, Lisabö, Xabier Montoia, Ama say, etcetera.
Mursego is her solo project and in 2009 she recorded and published what was her first album, Bat (1), self-edited. In late 2012, Maite published her second album as Mursego Bi (2), a clear progression in sound, increasingly further away from
the experimental and approaching a song format. After a period in which she collaborated on several projects related to film (“Emak Bakia”, “Invisible”), dance and theatre, her third album arrived Hiru (3), her definitive confirmation and the consolidation of a fascinating universe that is increasingly her own. After another immersion in other film projects (“Amama” by Asier Altuna and “Morir” by Fernando Franco) and presenting live stage performances with Harkaitz Cano and Ixiar Rozas, she presented her latest project: “100% Oion”, a collective album recorded with and for the village of Oion (Álava).
In 2021 she won the Goya Award for Best Music for his work in the film “Akelarre” with Arantzazu Calleja.
