“One of the greatest guitarists I’ve seen in my whole life. The world needs to listen to his music.” – George Benson
Brazilian born Diego Figueiredo (pronounced fig-a-ray-doe) is an extraordinary fast rising star among the world’s greatest jazz guitarists. His superb technique, timing and imagination have made him one of the hottest international names.
“A talent to be heard, admired and anticipated” – Travis Rogers, Jazz Times
Chiara started her musical path in Italy by learning to play the piano and performing very early. Thanks to an unstoppable live activity in Italy and abroad (Belgium, Switzerland, France, United States, Finland, Germany) she reached a great versatility that made her capable to acquire a vocal mastery of jazz tradition but also a remarkable skill in contemporary styles.
