Paolo Angeli

"...The endlessly innovative Sardinian guitarist and singer Paolo Angeli created carefully constructed yet dreamy music. Speaking of punk and jazz, there's Paolo Angeli. Sardinia's madly imaginative master of the guitar — albeit a fabulously souped-up guitar of his own invention — veers, in dreamy and almost stream-of-consciousness kind of way, between the traditional music of his island homeland, improvisational jazz and punk with a palette of super-saturated colors and amazing textures". Anastasia Tsioulcas NPR music - Top 10 Musical Discoveries From WOMEX 2014

Whatever you want to call it, nobody else is doing it quite like this. Paolo Angeli, the Sardinian sorcerer, manually magics beautiful, multi-layered music from his unique prepared guitar: a hybrid orchestra of an instrument with strings going in all directions, foot-pedal-controlled motorised propellers and hammers to create shimmering drones and bass-lines as he bows, strikes, plucks and strums while producing rhythmic atmospherics.

"In my opinion, Paolo Angeli has developed a significant new direction for the guitar with his innovations in design for our instrument. When I first heard him play his guitar,his solo concert was impressive not only for the unique sounds that he was manifesting, but also for the raw creative energy that it invoked. I admire Paolo on many levels…" Pat Metheny
