Terra Guitarra, as their name implies, is a musical group that focuses on two things -- guitar explorations and planet earth. Their latest album, DRAGONFLY, is definitely worth listening to. Their music, played in the popular Latin-style new-flamenco, is inspired by their love of nature, the outdoors and traveling around the country.
Lead guitarist Bruce Hecksel says the melodies usually come to him when he is outside experiencing nature where he feels the energy and vibrations of the earth. He lives in sight of the Mississippi River and likes to hike or bike through the woods and along the water.
Do yourself a favor and find some excerpts of this music to listen to online. You will discover this is a warm, melodic, highly-listenable album with some top-notch nuevo-flamenco acoustic-guitar playing. The solos are as good as anything by the big-name artists in this genre.
