Swedish-born Chapman Stick player Andy Salvanos bridges the gap between bass, fingerstyle guitar and new age piano; with a style described by one reviewer as "the sound of the world".
Salvanos, who has performed at the Adelaide International Guitar Festival, The Adelaide Fringe, National Folk Festival and the Cygnet Folk Festival in Tasmania, is also a passionate street musician with an extensive list of corporate clients. Two of his albums, “Dream recall” (2011) and “Closer” (2007), have been nominated for international awards. His other credits include supporting Canadian singer Jane Siberry, and playing bass in "The Tracker" with Archie Roach. While the instrument is largely unknown, Andy’s original music is based on heartfelt melodies and hypnotic grooves, making it inherently accessible to a large variety of audiences.
"Andy Salvanos. Your music reminds me of the sound of the world. Thank you for giving us the world to listen to, because sometimes people don't take the time..."
(John Francis Downey, solo guitarist, Canada).
