Al Di Meola, a bona fide living guitar legend, is among the top guitarists of our time. His ongoing fascination with complex rhythmic syncopation combined with provocative lyrical melodies and sophisticated harmony has been at the heart of his music throughout a celebrated career that has spanned four decades and earned him critical accolades, four gold albums, two platinum albums, more than six million in record sales worldwide, and various awards including an Honorary Doctorate Degree from Berklee College of Music and numerous GRAMMY nominations and awards. Di Meola is the recipient of 12 awards from Guitar Player Magazine polls and as a result, was inducted into their Gallery of Greats.
A pioneer of blending world music and jazz, going back to early Latin-tinged fusion outings like 1976’s Land of the Midnight Sun, 1977’s Elegant Gypsy, and 1978’s Casino, the guitar great continues to explore the rich influence of flamenco, tango, Middle Eastern, Brazilian and African music with his World Sinfonia, an ambitious pan-global group that he formed in 1991. Di Meola is also a prolific composer, amassing over 30 albums and collaborating on a dozen more with the likes of Chick Corea, John McLaughlin, and Paco de Lucia, among many others.
And while his dazzling technique on both acoustic and electric guitars has afforded him regal status among the hordes of fretboard fanatics who regularly flock to his concerts, the depth of Di Meola’s writing along with the soulfulness and the inherent lyricism of his guitaristic expression have won him legions of fans worldwide.
