Xingye Li plays Etude No. 1 by Villa Lobos


Xingye Li plays Etude No. 1 by Heitor Villa Lobos on a 2014 Roy Fankhänel guitar. This video is via the excellent Siccas Guitars and their YouTube channel.

Xingye Li is blazing here! Intense speed plus some good shaping and sharp contrasts in dynamics which really impressed me. Kind of reminds me of Yamashita’s style and tone. Tons of risk and exciting despite being rough around the edges on occasion. Li was born in China and has a vast number of accomplishments as well as three albums.
