Artist feature 2013:
  • Marcio Rangel (Brazil)
    Festival performance dates — June 27 and 29, 2913
    • Marcio Rangel, a brilliant graduate of the D’Alva Stella Conservatory is an extraordinary guitarist and Brazilian composer. He composes in a synthesis of styles that range from Brazilian guitar school to blues, from jazz to classical, jazz, samba, bossa, and flamenco. An extraordinary left-handed guitar player, Rangel plays a normal “right handed” guitar turned around, thus creating an original sonority — more powerful in the bases and voluptuous in the highs. This unique style creates new possibilities of chord fingerings and sounds. Rangel’s compositions are of a rare beauty and lyrical quality. He has been a guest, as interpreter and composer, in several festivals internationally. For more information visit
