THE MUSIC OF GOVI

Every so often, a musician emerges who is quite unlike any that have come before; a musician that reflects not an imitation of styles and tones, but who embodies the entire spectrum of styles in such a unique way that "categorizing" is impossible. Guitarist Govi (go' vee) is one of those artists.
A native of Germany, Govi spent eight years living in India. "My approach comes from the meditative and creative environment I experienced while living in India as well as playing with musicians from many different cultures and backgrounds," he says. It was there that Govi started playing the mandolin, mandola cello, sitar, bouzouki, charango and the 8-string ukulele. While in India, he also established a friendship with prominent German new age artist, Deuter. Their mutual admiration and respect led to Deuter co-producing Govi's debut album Sky High throughout which Deuter can be heard playing flutes and keyboards.
Govi became fascinated with the guitar very early in life when he simply walked past one in a store window and decided that was the instrument he wanted to play. In his teens, Govi performed as the lead guitarist in bands that played everything from rock to blues, including early Beatles and Pink Floyd. These experiences led to his first professional gig as a member of a group that played original material and won a national band competition and a recording contract which allowed them to tour throughout Germany.
Your Lingering Touch, 7th release from Real Music, represents the spectrum of Govi at his most romantic, while the 6th No Strings Attached is a celebration of Govi at his exuberant best -- on Billboard's New Age Chart for over a year. Guitar Odyssey was his fifth release for Real Music, another chart favorite, following the highly successful Passion & Grace, Heart of a Gypsy, Sky High and Cuchama.
Govi describes his compositions as "the natural and inevitable result of moving deeply into the wellsprings of my creativity. My music is a reflection of my vision of life rather than mere notes on a sheet," he adds. The result is a deeply mystical quality that is both jubilant and pensive, music that ultimately reflects the dimensions of the human spirit in all its complexity and simplicity.
Judging from the accolades, fans are being taken to new heights of their own by Govi's uplifting melodies. Currently living in Hawaii, Govi contends that the overwhelming response he has received from listeners worldwide is heartening and keeps him going.

HAVANA SUNSET BY GOVI

HAVANA SUNSET BY GOVI graphic Govi is a master of composing music that explores the softer side of the flamenco guitar. His albums, with their tropical rhythms, light bass and dreamy synthesizer mood, do a wonderful job of making you believe that you've embarked on a vacation to the Caribbean (or the Mediterranean, depending on the release), for a good 45 minutes. The languid luxury of Govi's music is explored in greater depth with HAVANA SUNSET, the first greatest hits offering from the guitarist. Featured here are some of his signature tunes, like "Andalusian Nights," "Gypsy Heaven," "Bumblebeat," "Persuasion" and more, filled with the colors of Latin America, Spain, Greece and even Asia. Great stuff here, this is "the" album to get if you want warm, pleasing, not-too-hard guitar music with an exotic flair.

JEWEL BOX BY GOVI

JEWEL BOX BY GOVI graphic If you've listened to Govi's last few albums, you've likely noticed a shift to more ethnic-based guitar in his music, something that started around the time of his MOSAICO album. JEWEL BOX continues to travel down this rabbit hole, capturing the flavors of Spain, the Middle East and India along the way. The music is sprightly and rhythmic, more so than his last few outings, with jazzy melodies, drone instruments aplenty and, of course, the voice of many different string instruments from Govi's arsenal (including the sitar and Turkish oud). "Sapphire Sky" comes close to the Govi of old with its upbeat melodies and flamenco rhythms, while "Diamond Sutra" sports a raga style with the sitar in the lead - a unique way of performing for the artist. The influence of Karunesh, who provides production support, is also noticeable across the album, especially in the synth use.
