Itzam Zapata’s musical ideal is to synthesize all the music he loves, searching for his own liberty of style. His eclectic musical style can freely include Gregorian chants, microtonality, romantic melodic lines and post-serial textures. Zapata holds a Master’s degree in Composition from the Sibelius Academy where he studied with Lauri Kilpiö. He also studied with Tristan Murail at Mozarteum, Salzburg.
