Al Di Meola - the brilliant, virtuosic multi-instrumentalist, composer and arranger, one of the most innovative musicians and a living legend - is a pioneer of blending world music and jazz.
His ongoing fascination for complex rhythmic syncopation combined with provocative lyrical melodies and sophisticated harmonies has been the heart of his music throughout a celebrated career that has spanned over four decades. The Grammy award winner achieved worldwide fame for both, being a solo artist and for his collaborations with Chick Corea, Paco De Lucia, John McLaughlin, Jean Luc Ponty, Stanley Clark, Luciano Pavarotti, Paul Simon, Phil Collins, Santana, Steve Winwood, Herbie Hancock, Frank Zappa, Jimmy Page, Stevie Wonder and many more.
