With masterful fretwork and vivid imagination, exciting young acoustic guitarist Johannes Linstead blends the best of traditional and contemporary South American/Caribbean melodies in this passionate, original and deeply emotional music.
Let Johannes Linstead's lively rhythms, fiery fretwork and gorgeous melodies take you on a passionate and exotic journey through Caribbean and South American daydreams and night dances. This is traditional and contemporary flamenco music at its finest.
Sensuous, sophisticated nouveau-flamenco guitar riffs flow like sangria, and Latin trumpet blows musical kisses sweeter than wine.” —New Age Retalier
Johannes’ third release, Guitarra del Fuego, with all its fiery flair, is beautiful and surprisingly tender nonetheless. The occasional gypsy violin and passionate rhythm and percussion portray dream-like visions and fantasy-laden romantic themes, nicely offset by fast-paced flourishes blazing from Johannes' well-tempered guitar. While occasional melancholy and pathos tug the heartstrings of the listener, this music brims with life, joy and happiness.
