Avatar is an acoustic guitar driven duo that was formed late in 2003. The combination of nylon and steel string guitars allows an emphasis on repertoire diversity, drawing upon such broad styles as Flamenco, Tango, Samba, Calypso, Bossa Nova, contemporary jazz and popular classics. Avatar has performed at most major events in Melbourne (Australian Open Tennis, Melbourne Cup, Commonwealth Games, AFL Grand Final, Boxing Day Test Cricket, etc) and at hundreds of venues for intimate audiences of 15 people up to concert style performances to audiences in their thousands. Between them, Avatar members regularly perform around Australia and have toured internationally on several occasions including Asia and Europe. Based on outstanding musicianship and an ever-expanding repertoire, Avatar explores the high end of guitar improvisation through each of these styles. Avatar is expandable from a duo to trio format (two guitars and female vocals or two guitars and percussion) or quartet format (any combination of two guitars, female vocals, percussion and bass guitar).
