Historically, the harp has been related to the heavenly and divine, nevertheless, Musas shows through their repertoire, more aspects of this instrument without losing its beautiful and particular sound.

Their interest in spreading and sharing the music of their instrument has led them to ask for commissions, arrangements and to compose themselves music for this group.
