Antoine and Samuelito

  • DFNW Campus - WICA Mainstage 565 Camano Avenue Langley, WA, 98260 United States

Antoine Boyer & Samuelito met at the Conservatoire de Paris in Gérard Abiton’s classical guitar class.  They soon started to play together and developed a new duet repertoire combining different influences and techniques from jazz, flamenco, classical, and pop.  They played their first concert together at the Issoudun Guitar Festival in 2014.  Their performances at the Samois Django Reinhardt Festival and DjangoFest Northwest have earned them standing ovations.  Winners of the fourth European Guitar Award in Dresden, they will appear in several concerts and have just recorded an album, Coincidence, with the label Doctor Heart Music.

Antoine Boyer & Samuelito’s personalities naturally blend together to explore a whole range of aesthetics.  While discovering each other’s music, they not only interpret Django Reinhardt and Paco de Lucía, but also other musicians like David Bowie and Roland Dyens.  Their respective steel/nylon techniques merge and form one unique sound, and their compositions Double Sens and Si Fuera Realidad have already captured the imagination of enthusiastic audiences in many countries.
