Avatar Jazz & Classical

Print Frindly View
Description

Avatar is a fiery guitar driven ensemble that was formed late in 2003. The combination of two nylon string guitars allows an emphasis on repertoire diversity, drawing upon such broad styles as Flamenco, Tango, Samba, Calypso, Bossa Nova, Jazz, Popular and Originals. Outstanding musicianship and an ever-expanding repertoire, allow Altar to tailor its performance to suit every occasion and need. Altar can step up to perform in a concert environment at festivals and jazz venues or can supply a sublime unobtrusive background over which any corporate function or event will flow. Exploring the high end of Guitar Improvisation through each of these styles Avatar is expandable from duo format upwards.
