Leandro Doune

Leandro Doune plays in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and some have described him as a bluesman but he would be the first I've heard play a tango.  Leandro has a relaxed, lyrical stuff which is fast and precise.  Although he is not given to any affection in the sound of his guitar, Leandro has a soft Hendrix style of play which is melodic and transporting.

The play list for his set is a mix of covers and originals with the latter being a far ahead favorite at the MusikCircus.  Leandro plays some intricate pieces but he knows well the value of a good hook and he hasn't forgotten the importance of melody.  Sometimes melody gets lost in a mad rush for more speed in play but Leandro knows the balance.
