Audiences are guaranteed a powerful and dynamic show of wit, personality and musical virtuosity.
Award-winning Italian guitar virtuoso Antonio Forcione joins forces with the dynamic Brazilian percussionist Adriano Adewale to form an amazing duo of passionate original world class music! Fans of Antonio’s relish the classic guitar compositions that have made him world renowned, but to hear the soul-jazz and flamenco guitar melodies masterfully blended with Adriano’s African and Latin rhythms is a stirring and passionate experience.

Forcione is considered one of the most charismatic and inventive performers to come out of Europe in recent years. He breaks the mould of most conventional, popular guitar sounds, be it in the field of jazz, Spanish, African, Brazilian or improvised music. Artistic, intense, and formidably inventive, Antonio is a performer of genuine distinction. Ever unpredictable, his is a celebration of the unexpected elements in life, a music of rare delicacy, humour and, not least, passion.

‘A one-off musical sensation. Unmissable’
- The Scotsman

‘Few acoustic guitarists can match Antonio Forcione for sheer instrumental virtuosity but fewer still come close to him as a composer.’ - Jazzwise Magazine

Hear local musician Nathan Torvik at the Granary Festival Cafe from 6.30pm, no charge.

Nelson Arts Festival, 7 - 24 October 2011
