Saro Tribastone is a composer and performer of Mediterranean instrumental music that finds the love of his homeland in Sicily easy to express through several instruments. The Mediterranean culture is embodied in the spirit and presentation of each composition the guitarist offers his listeners.
At a very young age Saro received a guitar as a gift then his love affair with stringed instruments began and never relented. He is adept with several instruments including the Flamenco Guitar, the Beating Guitar, a traditional guitar of South Italy, known as the "Chitarra Battente", the Tzouras from Greece, which is similar to the Bouzouki, and the Mandolin.
Currently Saro has two albums to his credit, the 4 track EP Fanusa (2006) and the full length instrumental world collection titled Viento De Siroco (2009). He also composed many soundtracks for documentaries and television over the years and some choice tracks culled from that work have been placed in TV Satellite programs for the BBC, Discovery Channel, MTV and The Oprah Winfrey Show.
Saro has collaborated with other groups and musicians, such as the duo Coyote, 2 DJs from Nottingham, England, and Randy Vild, a composer from California, where he played solo parts on two tracks on his CD. Various tracks that were created with Coyote can be found on the albums Coyote EP 2 (2007) and Balearic Beach Session (2008). And select tracks were chosen for the compilation of Laissez Faire Lounge 2, produced by ZYX Music. Saro also joined a group called Robasicula in 2007 and has been playing traditional and original popular music from Sicily with them, and currently performs live frequently. Robasicula has a CD out on MySpace www.myspace.com/robasicula and videos available on www.youtube.com/sarotribastone
