Incendio – Summoning the Muse

The acclaimed Los-Angeles-based group Incendio performs original “world guitar” compositions, featuring incredible guitar-playing across a variety of genres: latin, middle-eastern, and celtic grooves. Formed in 1999, the group has 10 CD’s and 2 DVD’s available internationally, variously hitting the Billboard, CMJ, NAV, and Amazon.com charts. Averaging over 150 shows a year since 2000, INCENDIO’s live performance is an explosive improvisatory journey, garnering tremendous audience response in such diverse venues as the National Gallery of Art, Reston Town Center, Strawberry Music Festival in Yosemite, the Sundance Film Festival, National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, California World Festival, the Beishan World Music Festival in China, the national Levitt Pavilions and many more across the U.S. Their ninth international release, the recent Christmas-themed “O Night Divine”, came out in December 2015.

Their previous release, June 2013’s “The Shape of Dreams”, stayed at or near the top of the Amazon flamenco and world charts for the remainder of that year. They have reached over 96 million spins on Pandora alone, and can be heard on terrestrial radio as well as many other streaming services. The group will promote their new 2019 CD “Summoning the Muse”, across the USA this summer. This album settled between Flamenco and world music is recommended by smooth jazz expert Ronald Jackson (The Smooth Jazz Ride).

The album is available on Amazon.com.
