Fabrizio Sulliotti

Fabrizio Sulliotti was born in Italy on the island of Sardinia, in 1961. He began studying classical guitar at the age of six and by the time he was a teenager, he was already playing in theatres, town squares, and his songs could even be heard on radio and tv.
In 1978 Sulliotti and his band, "Los Llamitas" reached the semifinals in a prestigious national competition organized by R.C.A. called "Cento Città" in Italy has since mastered a large variety of instruments such as the "charango" from South America, the American banjo, the harmonica, and the "sikus," a South American flute, as well as several percussion instruments.
In 1986, Sulliotti formed a band with guitarist and vocalist, Giuseppe Dettori who had played with artists such as Eros Ramazzotti and "Ron etc". Together, Sulliotti and Dettori began collaborating with other famous italian artists such as: Matia Bazar, Ivan Graziani, Piero Marras, Collage, Tazenda, Camaleonti, and Alberto Camerini. Sulliotti's work with "Stage Band," performing country music is considered by many of his contemporaries to be unsurpassed.
In 1997, he was asked to perform session work on CD's many national artists and his inventive guitar licks can be heard on Piero Marras's album, "Fuori Campo". But Sulliotti is also known for his original scores on several Italian documentaries and movies like his last entitled "Aurora" wich can be whole free downloaded in this Link .
Currently, Sulliotti is a member of the band, "D.O.C. Sound Unplugged".
He also can be found playing with a small orchestra or the Polyphonic Choir of Santa Cecilia in Sassari playing guitar charango.
In december 1999, he went to Cuba for the festival of the international choirs led by Electo Silva and he played five concerts in the cities of Santiago de Cuba and Havana.
He also took part in the commemorative concert in remembrance of Fabrizio De Andrè, one of the most important italian artists, one year after his demise.His guitar picking style is absolutely "finger style" plus his pronunced sense of rhythm gives full body to the sound of the band also using more instruments like: a 5 string banjo, harmonica,and several percussions. In the last two CD "Acoustic Machine vol°3" and "D.O.C. Sound MMIV d.C." he also plays Charango and Sikus from south America wiht a more "World Music feel".
Fabrizio plays slide guitar too (a great passion of his) and he sings mainly in english. By the way he makes his own "bottlenecks" ! When playing live he uses only nylon string guitars i.e. : Ovation® and Gibson Chet Atkins® while recording he also uses steel string guitars like: Taylor® and Martin®.
Anyway he now feels totally convinced that along with the others, Mauro and Giuseppe, he has founded his direction to advance acoustic music their way with D.O.C. Sound.
