Absolutely mindblowing and prodigious acoustic guitar player from Lisbon, who is just about to release his fourth straight classic, ‘Mel Azul’, on crucial Portuguese label Mbari Records. His 30 years of life have been completely immersed in the most joyous of relationships with music and sound. He’s done his profound reading of the most auspicious and melancholic melodies (a place where Steve Reich, Jim O’Rourke, Paulinho da Viola and Carlos Paredes all make sense together unto one existence), has been deeply enriched by the harmonic depth & richness of the samba/bossa heritage (which he knows by heart), and his composition in both short and longer-form is nothing short of remarkable – a sense of structure, narrative and storytelling complete by a total absence of any tics or theatrical antics, in which every turn is revised and remade for maximum fascination for both musician and audience. That and he has one of the best left-hands around – for a right-hand guitar player. Jack Rose and Ben Chasny said so. His fans include Gary Lucas, Naná Vasconcelos and the tragically defunct Llasa de Sela. We’re yet to meet a single human being who is less that astounded by this man’s music. Living proof that the boldest aesthetical moves are 100% compatible with complete social communion.
Ryutaro Endo is a guitarist based in Tokyo. After studying Photography and Art, he transitioned his creative expression from photography into music. While being part of the Tokyo Avant-garde and improvisational scene, Endo keeps his music rooted in traditional styles such as Jazz and Blues, and performs diversely with various musicians. His solo, on the other hand, uses fundamental guitar tone which somewhat brings nostalgia but also searches for a new possibility at the same time.
