Announcing: Fabiano do Nascimento “Ykytu”

GUARANTEED IN AND SHIPPING VIA OUR RAPPCATS WEBSTORE: FABIANO DO NASCIMENTO – YKYTU

The Brasilian guitarist’s first album of solo guitar, in which he overdubs, effects and alters this 10, 7 and 6 strings in a manner equally meditative and exhilarating.

“… based in Los Angeles, a continent away from his homeland, Nascimento draws from a deep love of Brazilian rhythms and pays homage to his mentors… his music is beautiful and transcendent and – at this time and place – a balm. – -KCRW.

Ykytu is Brasilian guitarist Fabiano do Nascimento’s fourth album for Now-Again Records. Produced by Nascimento’s longtime engineer Jason Hiller, this album is do Nascimento’s first solo guitar album and, like his previous album, Preludio, is reliant on do Nascimento’s own compositions, with a little help from like-minded musical travelers.  MORE
