40 Fingers

 

Four players with entirely different musical backgrounds, and each well-established on Italy’s music scene through their many individual projects, are set on a mission to explore new galaxies of sound with a wide repertoire of original pieces and covers, which they perform in the fingerpicking technique and skilfully arranged for four guitars. Their musical treat based on the reinterpretation of a range of modern music classics, spanning Piazzolla, The Beatles, Dire Straits, Erris Clapton, is equally at home in the styles of jazz and of  Latin American music.

The passion that these four guitar players share for the world of film and film music has led them to a series of interesting covers of famous film scores, among which are the two key themes written by John Williams for Star Wars directed by George Lucas – the Main Theme and Imperial March medley that has been viewed more than one million times on Facebook.
