Saro Tribastone is a composer and performer of Mediterranean instrumental music that finds the love of his homeland in Sicily easy to express through several instruments. The Mediterranean culture is embodied in the spirit and presentation of each composition the guitarist offers his listeners.
At a very young age Saro received a guitar as a gift then his love affair with stringed instruments began and never relented. He is adept with several instruments including the Flamenco Guitar, the Beating Guitar, a traditional guitar of South Italy, known as the "Chitarra Battente", the Tzouras from Greece, which is similar to the Bouzouki, and the Mandolin.
Currently Saro has two albums to his credit, the 4 track EP Fanusa (2006) and the full length instrumental world collection titled Viento De Siroco (2009). He also composed many soundtracks for documentaries and television over the years and some choice tracks culled from that work have been placed in TV Satellite programs for the BBC, Discovery Channel, MTV and The Oprah Winfrey Show.
Saro says “For me to combine melodies together is like writing on a daily journal all of my moods. I record it, and after listening to them I begin to work on the ones that have greatly inspired me. That is why I feel more like a composer than as a guitarist.” For him the guitar is an instrument to create resonant landscapes and to transmit emotions and feelings.
If you would like to visit the Mediterranean all you have to do is listen to the beautiful soundscapes created by Saro Tribastone. It will only take one song to deliver you to the sandy beaches and the warm rays of the sun to fill your soul with joy.
