Biography in English

Arturo Parra approaches the guitar like a world waiting to be discovered. He invents unusual sounds, surprising timbres, new ways of playing. Think of it as cinema for the ear: evocative music existing on multiple sonic planes.

His precise technique enables him to chisel notes into lapidary melodic lines over a palette of great sonic density and interlocking motifs. Guitar and guitarist are as one: Arturo Parra has a whole orchestra at his fingertips. “Guitar as you’ve never heard it. Cross my heart,” wrote the French magazine Octopus.
