Antoine Boyer & Samuelito

FRA

Jazz

Steel and nylon subtle blend into a single sound.

Antoine Boyer and Samuelito met at the Conservatoire de Paris in Gérard Abiton’s classical guitar class. They soon started to play together and developed a new duet repertoire, combining different influences and techniques (jazz, flamenco, classical, pop…). They played their first concert together at the Issoudun Guitar Festival in 2014. In 2016, their performances at the Samois Django Reinhardt Festival and Djangofest Northwest (Seattle) earned them standing ovations. They also won the 4th European Guitar Award in Dresden, as a result of which they were invited to record an album (Coincidence) on the Doctor Heart Music label.

Antoine Boyer's and Samuelito’s personalities blend naturally together to explore a whole range of aesthetics. Each of them discovering the other’s music, they interpret Django Reinhardt and Paco de Lucía… but also other musicians like David Bowie or Roland Dyens. In addition to their arrangements, a new musical universe is born from their own compositions, specifically composed for the duo. Their respective steel/nylon techniques merge and form one unique sound, and their compositions (Double sens, Si fuera realidad…) have already captured the imagination of enthusiastic audiences in many countries.
