Andreas Kapsalis Trio
Biography:
 
The Andreas Kapsalis Trio represents the perfect alliance of eight-fingered guitar virtuosity, outstanding melodic themes and rhythmic variations on percussion. Kapsalis?s solo guitar orchestra (his guitar playing often sounds like three guitarists not one) and the pulse of African and Middle Eastern drums, played by versatile percussionists Jamie Gallagher and Darren Garvey, define their previously unexplored style, often described as ?Tribal Mediterranean.?

Elements of Americana, flamenco, Greek, African and Arabic music are part of the mix, each receiving equal time. Recently, Kapsalis scored his first film, the documentary Black Gold, which premiered at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival.
