GIG - Rosario De Marco - Thursday, 6 May 2021 - 7pm-9pm
Rosario De Marco is a gifted musician and composer. A master guitarist who also has the capacity to compose. His music captures the warmth and passion of the Southern European lands, taking elements from jazz, classical, folk and popular music.
Rosario has performed live as well as for national TV and radio. He has released a number of CDs, including “Light and Shadows”, “Roots” and “Intuition”.
Successful performances include a support act for Omara Portuondo (Buena Vista Social Club), and Ladysmith Black Mambazo at the Melbourne Concert Hall
"Those who enjoy guitar music that flows like a cooling stream over the soul should hear this session ... This music relaxes the listener and enhances immediate pleasures no matter how passive."
(Michael Foster, Canberra Times)
"Passionate & inspired guitar playing are the two words that came to mind while listening to this CD that beautifully brings together the diverse styles of flamenco, Mediterranean, classical & folk. While there are many technically proficient guitarists, it is those who play with warmth & expressiveness that set themselves apart. With "Intuition", Rosario has recorded a truly distinctive CD that clearly establishes him as a member of the upper echelon of creative guitarists." Norman Beberman, GuitarNation.com
What the audience has to say:
I was there at the museum concert and it was absolutely sublime! I'm glad so many other people thought so too.
Thanks for keeping me informed,
When I came to hear you play on Friday night, I was stagnant inside, indifferent ...but your music made me feel again...about the things I have given up in the name of complacency and blandness...suffering had blinded me from "the treasures' within...but I now know they are still there Let know when you play again so I can relive this "douleur!" A bientot
I've just come from experiencing the magical sounds of Rosario De Marco at "Global Sounds at Sunset". His music, like his instrument, is his heart and soul, and it certainly hit a chord within me. I'd like to thank him and his band for all he offers those that are blessed to be encompassed in his Universal Language. May it spread, open, and connect the hearts and souls of many.
I ask for more information about Rosario and his upcoming performances, and that this may be passed on directly to the Artists. Intuition led me to his performance... And the gift he gave me was Intuition the album.
