SOLO GUITAR RECITAL "JÚBILO"
Yago Santos (1985) is one of the great names of the guitar of his generation. His music transits between flamenco and the cult, alternating in his discourse tradition and avant-garde with the packaging of a musician who has known how to drink from both sources. Not in vain, the great maestro Rafael Riqueni wanted to have him by his side in his reappearance at the Lope de Vega theater in Seville. Of piano training, Yago Santos takes us with his guitar to a mystical world full of nuances that make his shows an experience that goes beyond the strictly musical. It is recognized in this young guitarist and composer that he has developed a personal style in the toque. A style that evolves with influences from classical and contemporary music, expanding the compositional processes, lyricism and the new concept of harmony, rhythm, melody and design.
Author in Berklee Press
Yago Santos works as an author for the publishing house of the prestigious American university Berklee College of Music (Berklee Press), and the distributor Hal Leonard. He is currently writing his first publication that will be released at the beginning of 2019.
