Finally the debut album of Duo Magico is here! Duo Magico is a 8-string guitar duo consisting of Norway’s only 8-string specialists, Per Olav Kobberstad on 8-string guitar and Alf Wilhelm Lundberg on 8-string Brahms guitar. The two players met during the acoustic guitar festival Akustiske Landskap 2 years ago when Per was invited to perform a solo set in the opening concert.
They day after they performed together as a duo for the first time and soon discovered that their very different 8-string guitars actually complemented each other perfectly. After the great start they decided to work together closely and collaborate and write and arrange music together for their new 8-string guitar duo, and after many concerts, rehearsals, jam sessions and recording sessions finally their debut album is here for you to enjoy!
The 9 tracks on the album consists of 3 originals from both Per and Alf as well as 3 special arrangements of everything to Norwegian folk songs via Argentinian tango to a piano piece by Brazilian composer Egberto Gismonti. The record is recorded, mixed and mastered in Acoustic Landscapes Studio by Alf Wilhelm Lundberg, and the cover art is designed and painted by Per Olav Kobberstad.

This 8-string guitar duo was born when the two 8-string players met for the 2014 edition of Akustiske Landskap, the international acoustic guitar festival in Trondheim. We experienced a nice mutual chemistry both musically and as friends and have played together ever since. Per Olav Kobberstad is a great 8-string player that studied a lot with some of the best guitarists in South-America, and this duo draws heavily on the exciting meeting between North and South playing everything from tango to Norwegian folk music as well as our own compositions. Their debut record "Colonial Colors" - Duo Magico was released in August 2016 on Acoustic Landscapes records.
This album contains no booklet.
