Album Notes
It took one song for GUITAR REPUBLIC to revolutionize the concept of the acoustic guitar trio —a viral YouTube video called “Funky Sex Republic,” which combined sensual blues riffs, two-handed melodic tapping, powerful rhythms pounded out on the guitar body, and a bowing technique that produced ethereal high overtones.
Before GUITAR REPUBLIC, Pino Forastiere, Stefano Barone and Sergio Altamura were Italy's most successful solo acoustic guitarists, friends from different parts of the country united by a love of the guitar and a passion to explore new musical territory. Combining their talents (Pino's melodies, Stefano's rhythms and Sergio's experimentation), GUITAR REPUBLIC went from one song to a wildly-praised CD to concerts throughout Italy and tours in Europe and North America.

A new Italian guitar supergroup... an orchestral approach to the guitar ensemble that has global percussion breakouts, cello etudes, avant-garde sound effects and blue slides, all from 3 guitars - Echoes blog

Comparisons? Think Kronos Quartet, as a trio, guitars not violins, making it up as they go along. -Minor 7th

Altamura, Barone and Forastiere founded a Republic of Sound that feeds on the differences of its inhabitants, where they meet each other and unite their forces to create a common language, wonderfully variegated and complex. In the centre of this collective rite there's the acoustic guitar, that like a sort of shaman goes in trance assuming multiple forms and identities, putting men in contact with the magical world of harmony. - Jam Magazine
