Uji (Luis Maurette) is an electronic producer and musician born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. A nomad since the age of two, he has lived throughout the American continent, growing up amidst a diversity of sounds and cultures.
Uji’s music reflects his upbringing and has roots in indigenous, folkloric and African ritual music but is also a expression of the modern world, borrowing from the aesthetics and sound design of electronic music. Uji’s music is the alchemy that results from merging the seemingly opposite worlds of the ancient and the modern in a ritual of chants and dance.
He was also half of the pioneering duo Lulacruza since its inception in 2005, with whom he has released 5 albums, a feature film and visual album by director Vincent Moon, as well as a remix series by a worldwide mix of producers. Lulacruza boldly embraced the intersection of electronic and folk music, forming part of the South American new folklore movement.<br>
