Antonio Onorato


Antonio Onorato, an eclectic musician, fertile and innovative composer, has rightfully entered the history of the Italian guitar. In his 26 published albums he has been able to graft the harmonic-melodic styles of the Neapolitan tradition onto jazz-rock languages, fusing them with African-American, Middle Eastern and Brazilian music, developing an original and always evolving style.
He is the only musician in the world to use the breath guitar, a revolutionary and futuristic instrument. He has played in prestigious festivals and theaters around the world including the “Blue Note” in New York and has collaborated with Pino Daniele, Franco Cerri, Toninho Horta, James Senese, Gerald Cannon, Enrico Rava, just to name a few.



  • Antonio Onorato New Quartet
    a new interesting lineup with the Salerno pianist/keyboardist Alessandro La Corte and the Neapolitans Giuseppe Arena on bass and Mario De Paola on drums who will bring the characteristic sunny Mediterranean sound of the Neapolitan guitarist on tour. This time we start again from the sounds of the first CD “Gaga” up to “Vesuvio Blues”, moving from Brazilian atmospheres to American Indians, from jazz to rock-blues, but with the Neapolitan melodic tradition always in the heart.
