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 will 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…

Hailed as the ’Jimi Hendrix of the acoustic guitar’, Antonio Forcion 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, Italian, Brazilian or improvised music. International tours have brought high critical acclaim from as far as Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Japan, Africa, Caribbean, Philippines, Indonesia, Jamaica, USA and all over Europe.

‘…Forcione has a freedom of expression that should never be stifled by a label; so go in to the record store and look under Jazz world music , acoustic music ….or maybe just ‘genius’.

Jane Brace - Observer

ADRIANO ADEWALE first came to live in London in 2000 and has played with world class artists such as Zoe Rahman, Andy Sheppard, Tui Moreno Seu Jorge to name but a few. Other great collaborators he has worked with include: Jonny Phillips, Jonathan Preiss, Seb Rochford, Monica Vasconcelos, Modeste Hughes, Gustavo Marques, Steve Lodder and Ronu Majumdar. Working in partnerships with artists, he created sound tracks for: fine artist Monica de Miranda, the English dance company Stacked Wonky and a percussion based sound track for an animation movie based on the fairy tale “Little Red Riding Hood”. He also shared the stage with Oliver Mtukudzi (Zimbabwe), Tcheka (Cape Verde) and opened for Cesaria Evora, Airton Moreira and Flora Purim, Jools Holland, Seu Jorge, and Boubacar Traore.

Delicate, dynamic and controlled, the compositions and arrangements are inspired, showcasing a mind-boggling variety of styles and form. He’s an all plucking, all strumming, all clicking, tapping, slapping virtuoso of world jazz – and comes highly recommended.”
