“One of the greatest guitarists I’ve seen in my whole life” ---------   George Benson 2007

 

Diego Figueiredo was born in Brazil, in 1980. Diego played many instruments before choosing the electric guitar when he was twelve, playing in theaters and local pubs, revealing the great art of improvising and harmonizing.

 

Diego has performed around Europe and in the USA with his unique technique and sensitivity, and once shared stage with John Scofield and The Yellowjackets. For over a decade, Diego has performed frequently at La Paz Festijazz, Bolivia, and was invited by the Symphonic Orchestra of La Paz to take part in the recordings of a CD and a DVD to honor Tom Jobim entitled ‘Jobim de los Andes’.

 

“Dear Diego: I listened to your CD “Segundas Intenções” and it was a magical moment. When I go to Brazil I would like to play together with you” ---------- Pat Metheny
