Skutch Manos combine a hypnotic brew of lightning classical guitar rhythms and melodies, crunching trans continental percussion and deep, groovy bass, forming a colourful, embellished and well journeyed musical landscape that will make your eyeballs sweat!.
Their playful and melodic overlapping of textures, craft an intoxicating sonic landscape of stunning instrumental music that has drawn comparisons with the likes of Rodrigo y Gabriela, Led Zeppelin, Santana, John Butler Trio, Ozric Tentacles, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Nick Drake, Jaco Pastorius, Roy Harper, and John Williams.
They have a raw British energy mixed with continental flavours, harmony and rhythm, concocting a heady brew of Jazz, Celtic, Classical, Progressive Experimental and World music, that is decidedly different and extremely satisfying!
The bands live shows are fresh and compelling, thrilling audiences with impressive energy, instrumentation, style and artistic freedom, which is relentlessly entertaining, gloriously proficient, and the perfect mix of passion, atmosphere, and musicianship.
