Al Di Meola interview (@aldimeolamusic): elegant gypsy at the @FestivalJazzMtl

For the second time I had the great opportunity to interview the legendary Al Di Meola.

Here's the video chronicle for November 2013 with videos of the interview of Al Di Meola as well as some exclusive footage shot during the soundcheck, a treat you only get to see very rarely.

The legendary Al Di Meola was headlining the 2013 Issoudun Guitar Festival, knowing that I made every effort to get an interview with him. This was done thanks to Kevin Seddiki, guitarist with whom Al plays in duo, who was kind enough to play the role of intermediary and put me in touch with the management of the master. A huge thank to Kevin for his intervention.
The interview with Al Di Meola
I had 10min to do my interview, including setup time. I do not deny that I was a little nervous to meet such a superstar.

Done just before the soundcheck of the concert that evening as headlining of the 2013 Issoudun Guitar Festival, here is the interview with one and only Al Di Meola.

With the permission of the management I was able to attend the soundcheck of the duo and shoot some images.  It's a rare moment where we you get the impression that the artists play only for you.
