Profile Information

About me:
Before to become a professional musician I was a graphic designer until I discovered that the sound attracted me a lot and connected with deep parts of the soul. I am a professional overtone singer, shakuhachi and fujara performer, teacher, composer and improviser. I dedicate my life to spread this kind of music in my country and around the world through concerts and seminars.

At present moment I am involved in the performance of Japanese classical and contemporary music for shakuhachi flute and I do collaborative projects with Western classical musicians, musicians who have classical training in music from other cultures such as India, Persia, including butoh and flamenco dancers.

A new music world was opened to me learning pieces from Japanese contemporary composers. It is nice to discover the endless posibilities of the Japanese flute that is an instrument closer to the human voice.

I travel regularly to Japan to continue to receive instruction and I also traveled to countries such as Australia, Slovakia, India and several European countries to learn
music from those cultures.

I have published two CDs:

Discovering Spaces - Solo CD recorded at Primera Base Studio, 2004.
Instruments: Overtone & Throat Singing, Shakuhachi, Didgeridoo, Fujara, dvojačka, Chinese Drums, Dung Chen "Long Tibetan Horn" & Bells.

Encounters - Recorded in Japan at Kanna Earth Studio, 2007.
Artistic Director: Antonio Olías: Shakuhachi, Kalimba & Gong.
KanNa Orquesta: Hibiki: Hang & Harp, Kento Hagiwara: Hang & Gamelan, Teru Muraya: Sitar. With the special collaboration of: Carlos Guerra: Bansuri, Begoña Castro: Percussion on Hand and Feet & Ryotaro Shibata: Flamenco Guitar.
As a band we are:
Antonio Olías.
Shakuhachi flute, Overtone - Throat Singing and Fujara flute.
Yamaguchi Goro, Tanaka Komei, Teruhisa Fukuda, Etsuzan Fujiyoshi, Katsuya Yokoyama, Aoki Reibo, Shôzan Tanabe, Katoh Hidekazu, Thomas Clements, Palamjav from Altaï-Hangaï, Michael Ormiston, Wolfgang Saus and Lies Beijerinck.

In 2002 I took part in the first international overtone festival in Germany, called KLANGZAUBER-Festival Chiemsee. (SOUNDMAGIC). It was an unforgettable experience.

And all the people I have encountered in my life that have taught me many things about the life and the music.
