Headtrip Acoustic Project is a trio consisting of two acoustic guitars, one cajon and various percussive elements. Spawned out of busking in the streets of Dublin, It all started when guitarist and vocalist Alessandro Zangrando (aka Zar) and guitarist Giovanni Agostini (aka The Master) met for the first time while playing in the busy alleys of the Irish capital. The two guitar enthusiasts had a natural curiosity to discover what could happen if they mixed their main styles: Lap Tapping & Fingerstyle… As a result, their first jam session together brought up this EP's first song, “The Rising”. They kept rehearsing to both arrange covers in a very unique way and compose original music fusing their different styles. It wasn't until April 2017 that percussionist Niccolò Matterazzo (aka NikMartken) joined in during an experiment they did in Gorey, Co. Wexford, right before attending a concert by Shane Hennessy. The trio set up in the main street of the town and eloquently without having ever rehearsed as a trio started playing and improvising songs on the spot, it was then they realised there was a strong musical connection among them and the mix of two acoustic guitars, a cajon and refined percussive elements met to tell you incredible stories and create a unique atmospheric musical experience.
