about

Emotional Rescue is proud to present the first ever collection of works from Spanish song writer Javier Bergia. As a member of Finas Africae his name is finally coming to prominence. Now with this selection of his music from 1985 to today, the depths of his acoustic, folk and balearic writing can be heard.

Born in Madrid in 1958 to a family steeped in both classical and Spanish traditional music, Javier ’s unique mastery of guitar, percussion, voice, poetry and composition is drawn from both this grounding and upon his lifelong musical inquisitiveness’.

Since 1980 he has been an integral part of the ancient music group ‘Atrium Musicae ’. In 1984 he founded, with Juan Alberto Arteche and Luis Delgado, the groundbreaking group ‘Finis Africae’ as a sonic investigation into a fusion o f diverse ethnic musical forms incorporating both indigenous instruments and electronic elements.

As a solo artist, his career blossomed when, in 1985, he recorded his first LP, the acclaimed ‘Recoletos’ and he has since recorded thirteen solo albums . With Luis Delgado he recorded the now classic album ‘La Fl or De Piedra’ under the name Ishinohana and regularly appears with singer Ismael Serrano.

Javier has composed music for and collaborated on many documentaries, films and advertisements as well as collaborating on protects with a myriad of artists including María del Mar Bonet, Joaquín Díaz, Vainica Doble, Marina Heredia, Pablo Guerreo, Antonio Vega and Café del Mar.

Today he participates in the Sephardic music groups ‘Halilem’ and ‘Alquibla’, as well as diverse alternative chamber music groups. Javier works around the world as composer, arranger and producer and he appears daily with Manolo HH on Radio Nacional de España.
