Multi-award winning, guitarist-composer Antonio Forcione released his new album 'Sketches of Africa', in 2012. Inspired by recent tours throughout Africa, the new album showcases his compositions with local musicians who, together, evoke a joyous, spiritually beguiling homage to a continent still going through immense change. His first album in five years, 'Sketches of Africa' is eagerly awaited by the legion of fans Antonio has built up over twenty years of composing, performing and thrilling audiences all over the world. Antonio is a regular performer at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and is regarded as the Fringe's favourite guitarist.
