Victor Samalot Duo
Genres: Fusion, Jazz Rock, Latin
Cleveland guitar veteran Victor Samalot draws on his roots to fuse timeless Latin grooves with jazz stylings and a rock edge, appealing to fusion fans and music lovers alike. After the permanent hiatus of his jazz rock fusion group Rare Blend, Samalot kicked off a solo project that resulted in five albums which received rave reviews both regionally and on the world stage. You can expect to hear a fun-filled, exhilarating blend of original music, compelling covers, and irresistible improvisations that bring to mind Carlos Santana, Jeff Beck, and David Gilmour. As the Victor Samalot Duo, he is joined by multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, Rare Blend co-founder, and fellow Clevelander Bobbi Holt, who supplements his organic rhythmic vibe with her velvety bass.
