The Musicians

Lusitanian Ghosts is an artist collective led by Neil Leyton and Micke Ghost, featuring João Sousa on drums, Vasco Ribeiro Casais aka OMIRI on the Braguesa, O Gajo on the Campaniça, Abel Beja on the Terceirense and ethno-musicologist guru Guillermo de Llera on whatever he grabs at any given time. The debut album was recorded at Canoa Studios in Western Portugal, by the sea, and is produced by Ricardo Ferreira.


Lusitanian Ghosts is a musical collective experimenting with regional Portuguese cordophone instruments, some of which have nearly become extinct. The Amarantina, Beiroa, Braguesa, Campaniça, Terceirense, Toeira… they are the real Lusitanian Ghosts.
