Project Overview

The recording of our first album marks the result of a phase in our work. Mexican music is the result of 500 years of cultural, linguistic and artistic syncretism. Our repertoire intends to pay tribute to this amazing richness: Iberian renaissance, baroque from Latin America and original arrangements of traditional Mexican music. A journey of colors and atmospheres

Iberian Renaissance. We will record epresentative pieces of the Spanish polyphonic repertoire by composers such as Tomas Luis de Victoria and Mateo Flecha. This music was the prelude to the complex world of New Spain.

Latin American Baroque. This music is full of fascinating rhythms, vocal styles, syncretism and it’s still transforming through time.
We will include an important composer from this period: Juan García de Zéspedes.

Traditional music. we will pay tribute to our traditional Mexican music with arrangements and original adaptations written by our artistic director, Emilio Gutiérrez Tlacaelel.

Traditional music is probably the aspect which bests represents Mexico: it is diverse, colorful, an explosion of different emotions and most of all, it is alive and in constant transformation. This album will also be a way of revisiting traditional music from a different perspective, sharing space with other genres and vocal styles which rarely coexist.

NikanOmpa’s first album will be a tribute to Latin roots and their integration to European culture through the universe of music. We will announce the full program on December 2022 !

NikanOmpa means “from here and there” in nahuatl, the Aztec language. It’s a reminder that the human being is a nomad in constant movement, never ceasing to travel through different countries and cultures. Travel and identity are the central themes of our ensemble.



The vocal ensemble is dedicated to the interpretation of Ibero-American music and the creation of new repertoire.

Singer, pianist and composer. Artistic director of the ensemble

My main activity is choral singing: active member of the vocal ensemble of Lausanne, the vocal academy of French-speaking Switzerland, the Fontana Cantabile, Le choeur d’opéra de Lausanne, the Grand Théatre de Genève, among others.



In 2019 I propose to colleagues, all with ties to Mexico, to create this ensemble under my direction. I create arrangements and compositions inspired by the music of my country.



Music allows you to learn more about a country’s history and culture. NikanOmpa is the result of what I learned in Mexico and my integration into Europe.
