Kiko Loureiro




"I play NYXL1046, which is the most reliable string. It has the most beautiful tone of any string I've ever played."



Kiko Loureiro was born in Rio de Janeiro, but grew up in São Paulo, the largest metropolis of South America. One of the most internationally recognized Brazilian guitarists; he is probably the most influential one for a whole generation of musicians in Brazil, either playing with the band that opened doors to his success, the progressive metal ANGRA, or as a solo artist. Kiko was truly fascinated by the music of Scott Henderson, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Van Halen, Black Sabbath, Metallica, Paco de Lucia, Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny, Astor Piazzola, Hermeto Pascoal and felt these artists had showed him the inspiring tools to embark on a wonderful journey that would make him a musician to transcend genres. Throughout the world, Kiko has received highest rankings in countless polls as ""Best Guitarist"" and landed the front covers of the major guitar magazines, such as Young Guitar, Guitar Player and Guitar World. But it was in early 2017 that he got the greatest recognition in his career, and Kiko became the first Brazilian musician to receive a Grammy Award from the Recording Academy by playing in a rock/heavy metal band. At the awards ceremony, which takes place annually and unites the biggest names in the music industry, Megadeth won the Grammy Award in the category ""Best Metal Performance"" of 2016 with the single ""Dystopia."" After a career of almost 25 years, Kiko Loureiro shows that he is a tireless and complete musician who is constantly looking to push his limits and discover something new.
