Carlos Dorado's fascinating reputation precedes him: He creates impressive instrumental works – beautiful, moving compositions – that boast great harmonic complexity.
It's an impression that is pleasantly confirmed when listening to his Acoustic Music debut album “Caio Villa Sonja”. On the ten compositions from his own pen, the nylon-string guitarist demonstrates the range of his skill, at times in elegant solo performances, at times as a duet with the Argentine guitar virtuoso Quique Senesi, or with the “Profesor Superior de Guitarra”, Victor Villadangos. It is fascinating to hear how Dorado amalgamates the Argentine music tradition with contemporary Latin American music and borrowings from jazz, to form his own style, which is informed by a veritably radiant liveliness. Dorado describes his artistic vision as “new guitar music”. We can take him at his word – and embark on a voyage of discovery with “Ciao Villa Sonja” that will introduce us to one of the leading contemporary guitarists of Latin America.
