Born in Locarno, Switzerland, an eclectic cultural environment with a strong Italian heritage, Fabio Mignola was fascinated by the intricate harmonies and rhythms of the various formsbof folk and classical music that surrounded him. The simplistic beauty of the acoustic guitar quickly became the voice of thisbpassionate musician. After studying for several years with professor Dante Brenna, he graduated from Conservatory Donizetti in Bergamo in 1991. Mignola immersed himself in guitar studies and master classes with virtuosos like Alberto Ponce, Alexandre Rodrigues and Ralph Towner. Later on he was inspired by the spontaneity of jazz and the visual complexities of impressionism. As he also continued to master the classical and folk repertoire, Mignola found himself incorporating his diverse artistic experiences into a soundscape rich in textures. This pursuit of music without boundaries led to solo recordings and many productive partnerships.
