The tour with Angra and Nightwish in Japan built a huge respesct between the bands. Edu invited Empu to record the guitars for the Almah’s cd and last year it was Tarja’s turn to invite to record the acoustic guitar os her debut, “My Winter Storm”.
For me it was a great experience because, different if compared to the other ones with electric guitar and improvised solos, she asked me to bring a little of Angra’s sonority with nylon acoustic guitar and classical excerpts.
The result got a great response and I was invited to play with her on the concerts. Besides of her being a great Singer, the band features awesome musicians such as my friend Mike Terrana, Doug Wimbish (Living Colour) , Max Lilja (Apocalíptica) and Maria Ilmoniemi.
Now we are in the middle of brazilian the tour. Yesterday we did SP and I have just gotten out from the Curitiba’s concert. We went to México and Columbia. After I am going to talk about the details and to post some photos. We have already been through touching moment like the City of Mexico concert or the airplane’s turbine getting some problems in the middle of the flight.... many stories for many posts...
