GUY STRAZZ & PASSIONFRUIT
Contemporary Brazilian & Afro Cuban Music
Passionfruit is perfect for your next sophisticated function. With their classy array of Brazilian, Latin Jazz and Afro-Cuban Fusion they capture the exotic styles and feelings that Brazil and Latin America are famous for.
Passionfruit is headed by one of the country's greatest guitarists, Guy Strazz and is available in acoustic duo format for those intimate settings or as a Trio, Quartet or Quintet that can include guitar, bass, drums/percussion, vocals, piano and brass.
What the press says:
"Strazz has the rare musical gift of being able to make his guitars "sing". Pianists and violinists are always striving to achieve this singing quality to their sound. Only a handful of the very gifted ones ever achieve it".
Tony Magee. APRA RAP. Dec 2005.
"I was spellbound by the performance".
Sandra Hattingh, The Epoch Times, May 2005.
"Strazullo takes to the classical acoustic guitar and the virtuosity is dazzling".
