World-jazz acoustic guitarists Strunz & Farah, from Costa Rica and Iran respectively, have pioneered their authentic Latin & Middle Eastern fusion since 1979. They have been nominated for a Grammy in world music, have had three recordings at or near the top of the Billboard world music charts, and have received two presidential awards from the government of Costa Rica for their cultural contributions. They are regarded as among the world's top acoustic guitar players and have originated an extremely influential style of exotic improvisational guitar playing that reflects their ethnic roots.
'Moods and Visions' is Strunz & Farah's 20th release and 15th studio recording of all new material. It celebrates 35 years of the duo's highly successful collaboration, continuing and evolving their original synthesis of multi-cultural elements into a flowing, melodic and rhythmic acoustic guitar style of high virtuosity. Spectacular improvisations flash through their always colorful sonic weavings. These renowned master instrumentalists are accompanied by a top flight ensemble of rhythm section and flute.
