Multi Award-winning young French classical guitarist, Thomas Csaba who performs both solo as well as chamber music throughout Europe and Asia and who has trained under the leading luminaries of classical guitar is now in Bangalore to add his signature flair with the classical guitar, to the BSM's 16th EWMD 2018. Csaba will perform compositions of minimalist avant-garde composers, Arik Satie, Arvo Part, Philip Glass and others. From the strains of pure classical guitar all the way from France, the stage at the sublime Jagriti amphitheatre shifts to our very own Bangalore-born Peter Dickson, the 'style-guy', designer and creator of the twin-necked guitars who is now hailed as Australia’s Oriental/Indo/Latin Jazz fusion guitar maestro. Apart from having performed to sold-out shows in every major concert hall in Europe North America, Japan, Asia and Australasia, and great critical acclaim from the media, Peter has recorded 11 works to date.
