Lulo Reinhardt

Django Reinhardt left behind an indelible musical legacy, introducing and defining a passionate style of Gypsy Jazz guitar that was astonishing in the 1930’s and is still revered and emulated today. Born to a Gypsy family in Belgium, Django’s playing inspired his extended family in Germany and France, and successive generations of Reinhardts have reinforced his powerful musical vision and added their own ideas.  LULO REINHARDT, Django’s grand nephew, is a third generation master from Germany.  He has retained  the incredible Reinhardt soul, speed and dexterity  and updated the repertoire.

Lulo Reinhardt was first  taught by his father at the age of five. At twelve, he played in the Mike Reinhardt Sextett and later co-founded the group, “Django Reinhardt and the Heartbreakers.”   In 1991, he founded “I Gitanos” with his father Bawo and cousin Dege, touring throughout Europe and first establishing his national reputation.

Luca Stricagnoli

Luca was born in 1991 at Varese, Italy. Since he was a young boy he showed a great natural talent with the guitar. He begins playing classical guitar at 10 but not long after decided to quit for 3 long years. After rekindling his passion he teaches himself new and original playing styles, which include performances with different instruments combined with non-conventional ways to play the guitar that manage to win him many talent shows. At 22 years old, Luca was signed by US label “Candyrat Records”. His debut videos for said label grant him great internet success (14 millions views on Facebook and 7 on YouTube) and as well as please the public he grabs major attention from famous guitar players all around the world. Now at 23, Luca is requested to perform all over the world.

Chrystian Dozza

Chrystian Dozza is one of the leading lights of the new generation of  Brazilian instrumental musicians, a brilliant young guitarist/composer whose talents have been widely displayed and rewarded.

“Chrystian Dozza is, today, one of the great compositional talents of Brazilian guitar. Chrystian’s song catches the listener’s attention by its diversified quality and, many times its innovative quality as well. There are many references in his music, but all of them adapted to his refined personal view. With his combination of formalism and freedom, Chrystian gives us pieces that will certainly make  their way into the traditional repertoire of the Brazilian guitar scene.” –Sérgio Assad.

Debashish Bhattacharya

Indian Raga Music thrives on improvisation. No two performances by the same musician produce the same result. For a musician with substance, therefore, the sky is the limit. His improvisations within the framework of a Raga or within the limitations of the instrument he plays become a novel experience for himself as well as his listeners. Debashish Bhattacharya is one such most amazing music personalities of the world whose dynamism of artistry and creativity place him as a Genius.
