What if the origins of the guitar went back to the creation of the bow 17,000 years ago? STRUM is an ode to the guitar; a masterful performance delivered by guitarists at the peak of their art; a genuine orgy of guitars! Having sold out every show between 2010 and 2013, STRUM is a rare and unique gathering, a multidisciplinary show telling the story of an instrument that has taken root in the hearts of men all over the world and throughout eras. From its ancestral melodies to the birth of the blues, from its Renaissance lute form to the electrified guitar, the instrument of the people takes the audience on an epic journey tracing its multi-millennial span evolution. Accompanied by instrument acrobatics and an original visual canvas, the star of the show comes alive in the hands of extraordinary artists who showcase 55 authentic models of guitars in a dynamic and sensational experience. We are guitarists, we pay tribute to the guitar! A Patrice Servant presentation.
