If you listen closely to Antonio Forcione's compositions, described by The Guardian as 'one of the great acoustic guitarists', you can feel the nostalgia for his humble beginnings in a small village in southern Italy, the olive groves, the dusty streets and the first loves of a young boy.
Having now completed his well-received album 'Sketches of Africa', Antonio is returning to Live at Zédel in May before focusing on Cuba, where he is collaborating with artists such as Pancho Amat, Alejandro Martinez and Jorge Luis Chicoy for his next album. This also includes his involvement in a music-documentary film that will be recorded sometime in late 2017.
Antonio's impressive 19 albums and extensive international tours - both as a solo artist, in duo and with his acoustic quartet - have brought high critical acclaim throughout the world.
Artistic, intense and formidably inventive, Antonio is a performer of genuine distinction. Ever unpredictable, his is a celebration of the unexpected elements in life, a music of rare delicacy, humour and, not least, passion.
