Tierra Negra

TierraNegra

在当今的弗拉门戈吉他世界中,很少有人能够达到  Tierra Negra 的演奏高度,他们是由两位德国的吉他手 Raughi Ebert 与 Leo Henrichs 组成。
他们的音乐中融合了民谣,爵士,甚至是流行的元素,但他们的主题旋律与节奏都从未偏离弗拉门戈风格;他们结合传统的弗拉门戈吉他技巧之外,也创造了属于他们自己的技巧,他们的演出是看两位大师默契的互动融合了美妙的弗拉门戈旋律。
他们一起演出超过数十年,录制了 10 张专辑,可以再欧美的各大音乐节上看到他们的身影,与著名的音乐人如:Muriel Anderson, Victor Wooten, Stanley Jordan, James Burton, Reeves Gabrels, Don Alder, Doyle Dykes, Jack Pearson, Bob Brozman, Mark Egan, Danny Gottlieb, Paul Wertico 等等都有过合作演出。

In the world of modern Flamenco, few artists have attained the heights of Tierra Negra – Raughi Ebert and Leo Henrichs. In fact, so influential are these two German guitarists that they’re often cited as the protagonists of Flamenco Nuevo, the new wave. Tierra Negra may infuse their sound with elements of folklore, jazz and even pop, but the theme never strays far from the infectious rhythm and melody of Rumba-Flamenco. They have invented their own techniques for melody and rhythm guitar and mix these with the Spanish flamenco tradition. A Tierra Negra concert is a virtuos firework with fascinating interaction, hypnotizing melodies and powerful flamenco.
Performing for over a decade, Leo and Raughi have already recorded ten albums and undertaken tours that have seen them alight festivals and clubs throughout Europe, Canada and 29 states of the USA. They have performed and recorded with world famous artists like Muriel Anderson, Victor Wooten, Stanley Jordan, James Burton, Reeves Gabrels, Don Alder, Doyle Dykes, Jack Pearson, Bob Brozman, Mark Egan, Danny Gottlieb, Paul Wertico and many others.

Vitaly Makukin

Vitaly

Vitaly Makukin 出生于乌克兰,在四岁时,就开始学习弹钢琴,十岁的他因缘际会下,接触到了吉他,并花了两年多的时间,Vitaly 就知道只有吉他此种乐器,才能够充分表达出,他心目中的音乐世界,从此与吉他划下不解之缘。
在 24 岁的时候,他开始专研吉他乐器,特有的演奏技巧点弦 (Tapping),直到现在他已驭轻驾熟,此种演奏方式,并成为不折不扣的点弦之王。
与常见弹吉他的方式,非常不一样,这样的手法不像是在弹吉他,反而更像是在弹钢琴;同时使用双手,拨奏出旋律音符,而不是一手压和弦,一手弹奏音符,双手弹奏的位置不同,拥有吉他上的钢琴师美名。
【点弦】这种特殊演奏技巧,对任何现场演出者而言,需要有非常专业的弹奏能力及稳定性,没有任何表演者会在演出时,持续使用这此种弹奏技巧,因为风险太大了。
听过 Vitaly 音乐的人,总是猜不透他是怎么办到的,天马行空的音乐想法,加上炫丽的点弦技巧,这样的火花,就如同马戏团带来奇幻惊喜一般,让看过现场演出的人,对于他的演出,深深烙印在心中。

Vitaly Makukin was born in Ukraine. When he was 4 years old, he started to learn piano. He contacted guitar by chance when 10 years old and spent over 2 years with guitar. Vitaly understood only this musical instrument enabled him to fully express the music world in his heart. Since then, he built an unexplainable bound to guitar. He started to study the unique performance skill — Tapping when 24 years old. Until now, he has become so skillful in this performance way that he was called as the king of tapping. This approach is greatly different from common performance way of guitar as it doesn’t look like playing guitar, but piano; rhythm and note are played with both hands at the same time, not the way that both hands are placed in different positions, with one hand for chord and the other hand to play note. He is given the reputation of pianist on guitar. Audiences of Vitaly usually don’t know how he can do it. Unconstrained musical style together with gorgeous tapping skill makes such a spark that it is like the magic surprise of circus. Audiences of his performance are deeply impressed by his performance.
