Adriano Augusto was born in São Paulo, Brazil. It is through his flowing, unrestricted playing style gained from years of study of scale, chordal structures, and harmony of musical cultures from all over the word that he has had the greatest impact as a musician in South America and Europe. Adriano Augusto's powerful technique and dazzling original compositions transform the acoustic and electric guitar into an emotionally powerful tool for musical communication. His chosen and well-though-out path, has enabled him to break new ground. The music on this CD is not background music. The rhythms are there but mercifully implicit rather than noisily explicit. It is as refreshing as a swim from a deserted palm-fringed Brazilian beach to find the pulse of the playing by squads of percussionists and drummers. 'Fantastic flamenco guitar player (Santana influence).' HM The Hard Music Magazine Broadjam Top 10 Age 25 - 36.
