Fabienne Magnant is a classical guitarist and composer. She mainly plays classical guitar, flamenco, and viola caïpira, reflecting the style of her instrumental compositions with classical, Brazilian, and Andalusian influences.
After a long trip to Brazil in 1993, she recorded her first album, “Mémoire Vivante – Brésil et musique du 20ème”. Then created a duo with Paul Mindy (percussions), with whom she recorded her second album “Canto Instrumental” in 1998.
In 1999 Fabienne Magnant left for the Brazilian Nordeste, from Salvador de Bahia to Récife, which inspired the creation of her 3rd album and show “Le Sens Des Sens”. She brings back a viola caïpira, a five metallic double strings guitar emblematic of Brazil, which will become the privileged instrument for her artistic creations.
Her album, “La Trinidad” (2011), won the “Coup de Coeur” award by the newspaper Muzika.
