Artists of IFSGF 2016 to be performing in Vietnam:
ANDY MCKEE (America)
Very few guitarists nowadays are as well known by the mass as fingerstyle guitar master Andy McKee. At the end of 2006, he became a worldwide iconic figure after the performance of his song “Drifting” gained huge favor on Youtube and MySpace with more than 46 million views, and went viral on the Internet. Until now, it is still rated as the most successful music clip of this genre.
HUANG CHIA WEI (Taiwan)
Chia Wei organized the fingerstyle guitar contests and concerts in Taiwai to boost fingerstyle music in his country. He also organized many global concerts to better promote fingerstyle guitar to people. The differences in the environment around Huang Chia-Wei and in his life created the diversity in his music. Sometimes romantic and emotional, his music can calm you. Sometimes inspiring, his music will make you dance.
MASA SUMIDE (Japan)
Hailed by fellow guitarists as a ‘brilliant groove player’, Masa Sumide stretches the limit of the acoustic guitar and lets it sing with his unique one-man band style and melodic compositions. His repertoire runs from jaw-dropping funky tunes to sophisticated yet accessible jazzy, bluesy grooves. His music is full of beats and rhythm. It will make you want to dance all the time.
