My name is Alejandro Baleta. I play sephardic music with Cantigas de Sefarad (www.cantigasdesefarad.es), medieval music with Kalenda Maya (www.kalenadamaya.com, uder construction) and renaissance music with El Canto de las Vihuelas.
I haven't been active because I actually don't have a Lute but I do have a Viola Da Gamba. I don't know if that qualifies me. It is actually an antique form the 20's. I play the 7 string bass for the most part so the 7 string bass Viol seemed the logical way to go.
