Grigoryan-Bros-

With a repertoire spanning centuries, continents, and genres, displaying amazing telepathy and the ability to evoke emotion from every note, Slava and Leonard Grigoryan are justifiably regarded as Australia’s finest classical guitarists.

Amistad is the new album from this acclaimed guitar duo. The Grigoryan Brothers are taking this new project to audiences across Australia starting with an east-coast tour in May and June.

Throughout their musical journey spanning over two decades, Slava and Leonard have forged connections with like-minded souls worldwide. Each track on Amistad, released by Decca, is a gift from composers met during their travels, some tailored specifically for the brothers, while others find new life through their unique interpretations.

Contributions have come from such diverse composers as Cuban guitarist Leo Brouwer, legendary jazz guitarist Ralph Towner, Sting’s guitarist Dominic Miller, guitarist Gus Isidore (Seal, Peter Gabriel), Australian neo-classical pianists Luke Howard and Nat Bartsch, and more.

Crafted with love, respect, and a profound understanding, these compositions symbolise the reciprocal appreciation between the composers and the Grigoryan Brothers. Amistad, meaning ‘friendship’ in Spanish, is a celebration of camaraderie – a project resonating with respect and connection, a heartfelt tribute from the brothers.

You can see this awesome show on Thursday, June 13, at the Byron Theatre. Tickets: www.byroncentre.com.au.
