Profile:
Guitarist and composer Alessandro Stefana, better known as “Asso” (born Brescia, Italy 1981), was introduced to music by his father. In 1987 he began studying classical guitar and continued until 1998.
Over the years he became curious and passionate about many other instruments, creating a personal world of sounds and visions that traverses atmospheres that are both dreamlike and vaguely Western, with constant references to both the rural blues and the psychedelic. His music is made still more evocative by his unique selection of instruments: steel and pedal steel guitar, kalimba, omnichord, vinyl loops, ukulele, balaphon, electric guitar, banjo and tape echoes.
