Born: March 8, 1962    Primary Instrument: Keyboard

Elis receives his first musical lessons from his father. He also receives guitar lessons from a local teacher at age 12. But later becomes interested in the keyboards and piano. After playing in several rock bands, he studies jazz intensively on his own for several years.

In 2002 he joins the jazz-blues band Basin Street Café; the climax being the performance in the 10th anniversary of Cazorla's International Blues Festival, where they present Takeaway Gumbo, recorded in April 2004. Elis contributes to this record with four original compositions. One of them is used for the soundtrack of the Basque film Txakurkalea (Dog Street), written and directed by David Civico....

Elis Casado is one of the most passionate and musical innovators in the Basque Country scene. He is visual, improvisational, disciplined and integral in musical principles; and, best of all, he doesn’t suffer from the anxiety of the conventional. Elis is a frantic mutant who growls and roars in live performances with all his body senses.

‘Ripples’ is the title of his latest adventure. In this self-produced work, he shows us, once again, a great capacity to integrate his musical experience. A daring, fresh, uninhibited as well as mature record; where the interrelation of the quartet is outstanding. Mikel Sasia with his defiant electric guitar, Rik Bernabe with the murmur of his bass, rich in tonalities and Aritza de Castro, silky with the brushes and wise with the sticks.

(Jokin González-Radio Popular)

“The album consists of 6 instrumental tracks entitled “Ripples”, balancing between classic 50’s jazz, fussion and groovie tendencies…This is, no doubt, a fine work of Elis. Absolutely recommendable”
