Martinez Akustica will open for George Benson on all three nights at The State Theatre in Sydney; Monday 11th, Wednesday 13th & Thursday 14th April.
Victor, Andro and Dauno are father and sons, and make up Martinez Akustica. Victor – an extremely accomplished composer, teacher and leader in his field, leads the Martinez family. Born in Chile, they all play six string acoustic and electric guitar, bass and use their instruments as percussion and vocal beat box. One minute they play in unison, the next in harmony, then across and against each other, it is calm then chaotic, beautiful then forceful. It is difficult to fully describe them until you’ve heard them.
The interplay and understanding that flows through Martinez Akustica is inspiring, endearing, and infectious. They truly captivate their audience as they stretch each other’s ability with a flourish here and an astonishing variation there. Anyone who plays a guitar, anyone who aspires to playing guitar, and anyone who enjoys listening to guitar must see these incredible players.
