Patchouli & Terra Guitarra

Internationally Touring World Radio Chart Topping Guitar Duo  

Master guitarist Bruce Hecksel and singer-songwriter Julie Patchouli blend music from their two musical projects Patchouli and Terra Guitarra. Terra Guitarra is reviewed as “one of the top nuevo-flamenco groups in the world” - Zone Music Reporter. They have three top 5 internationally charting albums including Of Sea & Stars just won ZMR Award “Best Instrumental Album of the Year 2017”. 

Public Radio favorite Patchouli features Julie’s sparkling lead vocals, beautiful duets and award winning compositions. City Pages compares the duo's live sound like “taking a yoga class in a field of running mustangs”. The Chicago Tribune says the duo’s “songs about harmony & healing inspire the human spirit”. Performing fiery Spanish guitar pieces like “Malaguena” to the gorgeous vocal harmonies of “Sounds of Silence” this duo takes the artistry of guitars to another dimension.

In 2018 Patchouli & Terra Guitarra will bring their music all over the world touring the UK and Europe in May and China in July. 

Patchouli & Terra Guitarra have performed over 4,000 shows, toured a million miles on the road supporting 21 CD releases, performed on TV, film and are played on radio programs around the World. Their soulful fusion of blazing Spanish and world guitar instrumentals, heartstring tugging lyrics, lush vocal harmonies, and epic folk rock anthems infused with a visible onstage chemistry guarantees to make the night an uplifting one of music that will leave you uniquely inspired and excited to pick that old guitar back up.
