Steel string finger tapping guitar prodigy Andreas Kapsalis and nylon string classical guitar virtuoso Goran Ivanovic have joined forces to form a brilliant new experimental duo. They will be playing a concert at the Serbian Cultural & Arts Center – St. Sava. in Chicago on Saturday, January 23, 2010.

The Andreas Kapsalis & Goran Ivanovic Guitar Duo represents the perfect alliance of 10-fingered guitar virtuosity, outstanding melodic themes, and dynamic rhythmic variations. Kapsalis’ Spanish-inflected playing complements their previously unexplored style that challenges the boundaries of pop music structure, juxtaposing his style with the world-renowned Serbian compositional and improvisational mind Goran Ivanovic.

Goran’s unique and rarely found talents set you forth on a cinematic array of emotions. Sophisticated yet rebellious, this acoustic ensemble nods its head towards tradition but totally disregards technical conventions. Often called "cinematic" in style, the duo melds classical, various styles of traditional folk, and rock music – each receiving equal time.
