Check out Brazilian Guitarist Marcela Campos!
Native from Belo Horizonte (Brazil), Marcela Campos started her first notes on guitar at age 16. After taking private lessons with the renown Brazilian guitar player Roger Franco for a while, she started playing on the scene of her city and giving guitar lessons as well. Since 2008 she is engaged with the EXPOMUSIC (the biggest music product trade show from Latin America).
Marcela went to the US to sharpen her skills at Los Angeles College of Music (LACM), under the instruction of great players as Tariqh Akoni (Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Aretha Franklin, Carlos Santana, Joss Stone), Jody Fisher (Mike Stern, Joe Diorio, George Benson), Art Renshaw (Joe Pass, Frank Gambale), Philip Bynoe (Steve Vai).
In 2015, Marcela was one of the finalists from the “Queen of Strings” (worldwide female bass and guitar competition), ending as the guitarist most voted by the public.
She recently released her debut album, featuring Philip Bynoe (Steve Vai) and Scott Henderson.
