Before moving to New York in 2009, NACHO ARIMANY was chiefly known as one of Spain’s most sought after Flamenco percussionists. His unique style and diverse capabilities steered him into the broader scopes of world music and Jazz, where he has performed and recorded with many top artists in these genres.
Arimany’s musical innovations are being applied to sound therapy and transformational processes. On this field his contribution is remarkable as he has entirely composed, performed and produced the music of inTime a 9CD rhythm-based music listening therapeutic method created to improve brain function, developed in collaboration with Sheila Allen and Advanced Brain Technologies.
