Svenson presents his new album „Acoustic Holiday“

Highly acclaimed by specialised press, Svenson presented his new album "Acoustic Holiday". Sensitive, imaginative and technically skilled leads Globetrotter Svenson his listeners in the "Acoustic Holiday". The travel program includes the great continent (Continental Blues), South America (Samba de Gaia, In den Kordilleren) and Scandinavia (Sixtus). Also the Egyptian goddess Isis comes in a hypnotic fascinating piece (The short Journey of Isis & Re) to speak. The technical finesse of the talented musician reaches from Spanish flamenco Rasgueado (In den Kordilleren ) to play with plectrum (Melina), fingernail (Sixtus) and dome (Blues & Toccata in E Minor).

Particular highlights of this album are two pieces: the groovy "T for Theia", recorded with the "German Blues Harp-Pope" Dieter Kropp and intoxicating Latin rhythms in "Samba de Gaia". Here the well-known Latin-gypsy guitarist Lulo Reinhardt enriched by his dexterity and rich sound of his Maccaferri guitar the composition of Svenson.
