Brazilian born and London raised Danilo Borgerth is a prodigious musical talent. With the guitar by his side, in his mind and in his soul Danilo has created music which leaps from the strings. From growing up in a multiple cities Danilo’s music transcends any expectations tied with a London artist and a Brazilian artist. Initially performing virtuosic solo guitar pieces such asThe Train Song and his award winning Dog and the Bell (premiered at the age of 18 on the BBC Radio 2 as part of their Guitar Season) Danilo has moved on to work with different bands, writing and sessioning for Grammy winners and nominees and composing film scores. Through working in bands and writing film scores Danilo’s music has developed into a more contemporary multi-layered sound, such as the driving rhythm of Tangara. Taking inspiration equally from classical music, alternative pop, Brazilian, electronic, funk, jazz… (the list can go on) means his melodic music is not defined by genres but by emotions. Danilo has performed on some of the U.K.s greatest stages including Glastonbury, Royal Festival Hall, Barbican, Ronnie Scotts Bar, Roundhouse, 100 Club and stages in Brazil, Paris and Poland. His confidence and skill at performing bring the audience into his world, people described his performances as “spell-binding”, “amazing”, “engaging” and “beautiful”. In 2016 Danilo has already worked with Grammy nominee Sky Montique, upcoming jazz singer Imogen Mahdavi, and is completing an E.P. to be released in the autumn of 2016. “I am often asked to describe the style of what I do, and the best word I have found is ‘homely’. Having been born in Brazil and then raised in London, home is a fluid and open place where barriers don’t exist. It is also a place where you can let your guard down and let the purist simple emotions come out, that is what I try to do through my music.”

I am so glad we booked Danilo to perform a short recital for the guests at our drinks reception last night. His spoken introductions to each song drew the audience in and captured our imaginations, and his playing was both mesmerising and masterful. I look forward to hearing more from Danilo in the future. Definitely one to watch!
