”Singer - Songwriter“
April 28 Kulturcafe Lichtung presents a set of folk-inspired music with American singer-songwriter Raphael Silva, accompanied by lead guitarist Jaime Velasco, and banjo player Carsten Burstedde. A classically trained guitarist, Silva writes in the tradition of iconic lyricists such as Townes van Zandt and John Prine. His songs, some tender and others toe-tapping, evoke a wide range of emotions, but above all he impresses with his skillful fingerpicking and the unpretentious warmth of his voice. Coupled with Velasco's jazz-influenced solos and Burstedde's rhythmic textures, the group has crafted an exciting and personal sound.
