Germán López, a brilliant young star of the “timple” from The Canary Islands harnesses the grit of Spanish flamenco, the structure of west African rhythms, the flourishing spirit of jazz, and an innovative 21st century approach to performing “island music.
Olli Soikkeli, jazz from Finland, The Wall Street Journal wrote: “Olli Soikkeli, 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.”
Jim Kimo West, slack key guitar from Hawaii, best known as long-time guitarist for the world’s most successful musical comedy artist, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Kimo is regarded as one of the world’s foremost “ki ho’alu” or Hawaiian “slack key” guitar artists and his music has garnered many millions of streams on Spotify and Pandora.
