Night of the shred: Andre Nieri Trio (BRA/FIN) + Mr. Fastfinger Trio


Wed 5 Dec 7 p.m.

One of the brightest rising stars in fusion rock, the Brazilian guitar prodigy André Nieri breaks the limits of fusion by using the finger picking technique used by acoustic guitar players on his electric guitar to create sounds you rarely hear. Born and raised in Brazil, Nieri’s first breakthrough was his victory of the 2014 Guitar Idol contest. He was soon asked to join the band of the drummer legend Virgil Donati where he has played ever since. Nieri will be accompanied on stage by the master drummer Tuomas Rauhala known for playing in For The Imperium and with Kasmir, and bassist Ari-Pekka Kauppinen, a modern fusion virtuoso.

The evening will be opened by Mr. Fastfinger Trio, undoubtedly one of the most expressive instrumental bands in Finland. Its members are Mika Tyyskä (guitar), Lasse Rantanen and Thomas Törnroos (percussions) and the charismatic animated guitarist Mr. Fastfinger. When playing live, the band relies on tight arrangements and intuitive improvisation. Anything can and will happen on the stage!
