From eight to sixty-five
We celebrate the joy of playing guitar with a special afternoon in a very international environment. Students from eight to sixty-five years old will share what they’ve been learning at the lessons in the relaxed and cozy atmosphere that Theater Munganga provides.
“One with the music”
Susana Raya is guitar player, singer and teacher in Susana Studio. Born in Córdoba (Spain), Susana is considered by the jazz critic and historian Ted Gioia as “the andalusian Eva Cassidy”. Featured in the prestigious magazine Fingerstyle 360 that says: “When Susana performs, a quiet comes over the room. The audience instantly realizes that what they´re hearing is special. This type of response is quite rare and indeed, magical. It speaks to the power of music when the artist is one with the instrument, one with the music, one with the audience”.
Songwriter, classical trained guitar player, european awarded jazz singer and jazz guitar graduated by Conservatory of Amsterdam. The Tribune de Genéve described her as an “improviser full of fantasy and a sensitive interpreter”.
She lives currently in Amsterdam.
“Guitar/singing lessons with Susana is great fun! Susana focusses on what you really want to do, she easily goes from folk to jazz to metal, whatever you bring on. But if you want some ideas or inspiration, she is happy to think with and make suggestions that will suit you”.
“I found in Susana what I needed”
“I found in Susana what I needed: after some months, she took me from nothing to the point that I’m able to play the guitar in the parties with my friends”.
