  Sights & Sounds - Ivan Najera

This week we have the pleasure of featuring the very talented guitarist Iván Nájera. Iván, who was born in Ecuador, presents a unique and rich sound that's influenced by Spanish, Latin and Jazz rhythms.

Currently, Iván has 4 albums released: Jungle, On Top Of The Rain, Devotion and Malagueña, recorded with Swiss guitarist, Tony Unger. Iván can also be heard as a featured guest on Christine Bonner's CD's, Sand Castles and Compañeros, as well as on the album, I'll Always Be Near You, by Paul Corbin.

During his career, Iván has shared stages with José Feliciano, Julio Iglesias and Enrique Coria, and his musical compositions have been quoted as, "some of the most accomplished and innovative guitar works of recent times" by the Tower Records magazine, Pulse Latino.
