Olli Soikkeli, a Django-style Finnish guitar whiz, will be playing duets with Cesar Garabini, the mostly-Brazilian 7-string guitar artist. Gypsy meets choro! Brazilian chorinho and Gypsy jazz are a natural pair. Both matured in the early 20th century influenced by urbanization, industrialization, European classical music, African rhythms, popular dance music, and the dawn of the recording industry.
This will be an evening of the refined guitar playing, truly a glimpse of a mastership.
"Olli Soikkeli, is a riveting Finnish guitarist who combines astonishing dexterity and speed with pure soul in a way that places him among the worthiest current day successors to the legacy of the great Django." --The Wall Street Journal
