Guitar Duo to Debut New Music/Art Concept
Julie Patchouli and Bruce Hecksel
The acclaimed area guitar duo of Bruce Hecksel and Julie Patchouli, known as Terra Guitarra, will perform at 8 p.m., April 22, at the Center for the Performing Arts, in Bonita Springs. Attendees can enjoy their new animated, multimedia, music/art experience and listen to the debut of a new, original Landscape of Guitar concept, a fitting tribute to Earth Day that suggests the land around us “sings” to life alive with vibration and energy.
While listening to fiery Spanish guitar pieces like Malagueña, attendees will view a colorful backdrop of lush, vibrantly painted landscapes based on the flowing music and three-dimensional guitar birds flying through mountains and over rivers, cities and oceans, all with guitar themes.
The duo has issued two top-five albums, including Firelight (nominated Best Instrumental Album of 2015), and has been cited by Zone Music Reporter as one of the top nuevo-flamenco groups in the world. The Chicago Tribune described the group as performing “songs about harmony and healing [that] inspire the human spirit.”
