Genre: World, World, Flamenco
The guitarist and composer Michio mainly lives in Düsseldorf and tours Europe and Japan with his Michio Flamenco Project (guitar, bass, vocals, shakuhachi, percussion).
A welcome guest at renowned flamenco and guitar festivals both in Germany and abroad, he also performed at the world-famous "Festival de Flamenco" in Jerez de la Frontera in 2007 - being the first non-Spanish guitarist ever to be invited there to present his own programme. Already in May 2007, Michio harked back to his classical roots (studies of classical guitar at the Vienna Conservatory and the Conservatory of the Saarland): with much acclaim, he interpreted the famous "Concierto de Aranjuez" by Joaquín Rodrigo, together with the Loh-Orchestra Sondershausen.
His latest CD "Así nada más" was again released with Alameda Production and has been distributed by Galileo MC since October of 2008.
Apart from working as a guitarist, Michio has also become a sought-after composer: for instance, he both wrote and performed live the stage music for contemporary dance adaptations of Federico Garcá Lorca's "Das Haus der Bernarda Alba" and "VergissMeinNicht", both directed by choreographer Mei Hong Lin.
