Its members are professional musicians who are experts in several different styles: classical, jazz, contemporary and experimental, and the result of their creations is unique, fresh, original and exciting.

Galgo is the alias chosen by the musicians Javier Bejarano and Veronica R. Galan for their environmental project. Soundscapes of abstract evocation, in which coexist in a natural way, the ambient and the organic melodies with arid and narrow textures. The film is other of the basic components of this sound pot, as well as repetition and scenic improvisation. All these ingredients shape the staple diet of this project that mutates in each performance.

That same year they manage to be semifinalists at Festiamas selected from 87 bands of the Asturian world.

Arkaine seeks to make the sound beautiful and musical, influenced by post-rock of the 90s or the more lo-fi electronic. Their work has been described as “engine room electronic and pottery varies for drawing something like a doomsday likely and intense”.
