A year ago, an article published by the Washington Post about the Death of the Electric Guitar caused a big turmoil. It’s a sign of the time: the “six-string electric” is probably no longer the central instrument in popular music it used to be in the second half of the XX century. But the electric guitar still plays an increasingly important role in some contemporary music, as evidenced by the work of Luca Nostro, Tonino Battista and PMCE. And the heart of these series of concerts lies right in the extraordinary fascination of the electric guitar, with the scores of musicians who, in recent decades, have translated the instrument’s peculiarities — and its ineffable, magnetic sensuality — into an unpredictable otherness.
