Sketches Of Africa: Antonio Forcione
Multi-award winning, genre-bending guitarist-composer Antonio Forcione released his new album Sketches of Africa in 2012.
Inspired by recent tours throughout Africa, the new album showcases his compositions with local musicians who, together, evoke a joyous, spiritually beguiling homage to a continent still going through immense change.
His first album in five years, Sketches of Africa is eagerly awaited by the legion of fans Antonio has built up over twenty years of composing, performing and thrilling audiences all over the world.
Breaking the mould of most conventional popular guitar sounds, whether in the field of jazz, Spanish, Brazilian, folk, felamenco, pop, rock classical or improvised music, Antonio Forcione draws on the full dynamic range of the instrument, using his entire body as a percussive tool. Dubbed the Jimi Hendrix of the acoustic guitar world, Antonio has recorded 16 albums and opened for Phil Collins, Bobby McFerrin and Jools Holland.
'Forcione is mesmerizing .. passion, grace and fire' (The Times).
