Video: SEPULTURA, ANGRA Guitarists Perform At GARANHUNS JAZZ FESTIVAL

Brazilian heavy metal guitarists Andreas Kisser (SEPULTURA) and Kiko Loureiro (ANGRA) joined the UPTOWN BAND on stage last month during the Garanhuns Jazz Festival in Garanhuns, Pernambuco, Brazil. You can watch professionally filmed video footage of their appearance below.

Kisser's solo debut, "Hubris I & II", was nominated in the "Best Brazilian Rock Album" category at the 2010 Latin Grammys.

"Hubris I & II" was released in June 2009 via Holland's Mascot Records. A two-disc set, the self-produced effort was recorded in part at A Voz do Brasil studio in São Paulo.

Kisser was honored with a commemorative brick with his name on it, placed in the wall in front of Liverpool, England's legendary Cavern Pub, in a ceremony which took place on his 44th birthday, August 24, 2012. He is the first Brazilian artist to have his name eternalized in the Cavern wall that became famous when THE BEATLES made their first lunchtime appearance on Tuesday, February 9, 1961.

Kiko's latest solo album, "Sounds Of Innocence", was released in Japan at the end of June 2012 and was made available in the rest of the world in July 2012. The CD features guest appearances by Virgil Donati (PLANET X, STEVE VAI, SOUL SIRKUS) on drums and Felipe Andreoli (ANGRA, ALMAH) on bass. One track also features LIVING COLOUR bassist Doug Wimbish. The effort was produced by Kiko Loureiro, mixed by Dennis Ward and mastered by Jürgen Lusky.
