Cathedral of Trees performs original arrangements of progressive music for solo guitar, often combining classical, popular, and world music influences. Finding inspiration from the Amazon rainforest in Brazil, composer Egberto Gismonti used a mix of primal and modern musical elements, informed by jazz, to reflect on the beauty and complexity of the natural world. Not afraid to keep things simple in order to be deeply felt, the jungle can be a metaphor for divergent sources entwining to create a beautiful whole. Drawn to Gismonti, the Beatles and other composers who blur the boundaries between musical styles, Cathedral of Trees explores the natural rhythms and mystical sounds of Brazil and beyond through the voices of the nylon strings.

Traditional Repertoire

Works by classical and popular music composers influenced by world music : Egberto Gismonti, The Beatles, and their contemporaries.
