    Assads Perform at Adelaide International Guitar Festival

    "We were raised in a country where the borders between different types and styles of music are not very clear." So says Rio-born guitarist Sérgio Assad, in an interview with the Advertiser out of Adelaide, Australia. On his latest record with his brother Odair, Jardim abandonado, the Assads' ability to move seamlessly across musical styles has produced an astounding mix of works from Brazilian bossa nova to Broadway.

    In their upcoming concerts with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, as part of the Adelaide International Guitar Festival, November 30 and December 1, the Assad brothers present another genre-bending piece, Piazzolla's Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, along with Rodrigo's Concierto Madrigal.
