Adam Zuniga is a guitarist who has a real talent for creating fresh new melodies, both in his compositions and in his improvisations. His performances include aspects of ambient, World Fusion, and Latin music, featuring his very attractive guitar interacting with electronics on one memorable theme after another. He is very much in his own musical category.
On his first album Echoes & Light and then with Discoveries, Zuniga fashions exotic musical journeys for the ears through a global panorama of styles, moods and modes. His dazzling guitar work echoes such other masters as Ottmar Liebert, Acoustic Alchemy, The Gipsy Kings, ambient internationalist Govi and others. But at the same time he also draws from multi-stylistic groove bands like Morcheeba and Thievery Corporation, all the while utilizing electronic effects and processing on his nylon-string guitar to create sounds unlike those by anyone else. All of it threads into alluring compositions that continue to enchant your consciousness long after you’ve heard them.
