Friday & Saturday 1/24-1/25, Caffè Sole is proud to present the residency of Goran Ivanovic and Fareed Haque|
Two of the finest guitar players of their respective generations.
Ivanovic & Haque recorded two CDs together, Macedonian Blues and 7 Boats, to great critical acclaim, even getting the nod as top best acoustic guitar albums 2004 from Acoustic Guitar magazine. Both have been so busy that they have not been able to play again together for years.
Inspired by the rhythms and melodies of flamenco, jazz, classical, rock and the Balkan region, this performance features their music which is carefully balanced between blazing virtuosity and sheer beauty.
For These Musicians, There Is No Continental Divide.
HOWARD REICH ,Los Angeles Times:
"Although the music on this extraordinarily sensitive guitar-duo recording transcends genre, there's no resisting its mix of American jazz, acoustic blues, flamenco rhythm and Macedonian melody. Only two guitarists on the planet would come up with such a concoction, but Ivanovic and Haque (whose roots run to Yugoslavia and South Asia, respectively) play as if they're speaking the same musical language
Fareed Haque- is a modern guitar virtuoso. He played at Caffè Sole in 2017 with Tony Monaco in one of the hottest shows in Caffè Soles musical history(that is saying a lot!). In addition to his virtuosity, his playing has great fire and passion and is thrilling. Fareed is steeped in classical, flamenco and world jazz traditions, his unique command of guitar joins tradition and fearless innovation.
Best World Guitarist. Guitar Player Magazine 2009 Readers Choice Awards
Classical and jazz, East and West, the future and the past, the brain and the booty all come together in glorious harmony via his fleet fingers and freewheeling spirit. Guitar Player Magazine
A finely honed classical technique and a deep well of experience in pop music makes Haque a singular figure in music. Chicago Tribune
Goran Ivanovic- is a multiculti wunderkind. A Croatian-born Chicagoan, he plays classical guitar, with which he not only unleashes great stampeding Balkan rhythms, but intricate Middle Eastern and Asian-inspired cadences as well. He was in the midst of studying at the prestigious Mozarteum University in Salzburg, Austria with masters like Elliot Fisk and Joaquin Clerch when his parents (his father is a Serb, his mother a Bosnian Croat) were expelled in the late 90s. The family was granted asylum in the US and they settled in Chicago.
