The Los Angeles Times once said: Badi Assad redefines solo (guitar) performance! Revelatory, a brilliant display of innovation, imagination, and skillalmost hypnotically compelling!
Based in São Paulo, Brazil, virtuoso guitar player, singer, vocal juggler and songwriter, Badi Assad has emerged as one of the most versatile artists of her generation. With more than 14 albums released worldwide, her 2006 CD Wonderland was selected among the 100 Best from the prestigious BBC London and was also included among the 30 Best on Amazon.com. The US magazine, Guitar Player, selected her from a pool of artists (that included the likes of Ben Harper and Ani DiFranco), as one of the guitar players that would revolutionize the world
"Brazils Badi Assad is lauded as one of the worlds most unique and cross-transcendental performance artists of this generation. She transcends traditional styles of her native Brazilian music with a mixture of pop, jazz and world/ethnic sounds from around the world. She combines an extraordinary guitar talent, a unique mouth percussion, beautiful singing, combining a rhythmic body movement, to create an exciting, fresh music sound, and leaving spectators simply BREATHLESS. Indeed, watching Badi perform is like witnessing a spiritual phenomenon. How she does what she does all at once, and delivering an extraordinary performance, is quite unbelievable."
