"Harp Guitar Goes Brazil" Album
10 wonderful compositions with brazilian roots. 8 original songs created by the soloist Antonio Koudele specially for this wonderful instrument, showcasing tonal richness and harmonic diversity of the harp guitar, an instrument, capable of holding its own against the typically dense brazilian rhythms and their fast harmony changes. You will truly feel the warm ambience of the beautiful country Brazil.
"A La Manera Cubana" Album
With original compositions and arrangements by Antonio Koudele, "A La Manera Cubana" is a stylistically confident journey through Cuban adaptations of the "Musica Bailable" of the Caribbean, Latin America, New York and Miami. A new cultural idiom breaks free from political regementation: Contrary to the brassy timbre of trombones and trumpets of the Puerto Rican salsa, the Cuban Sons Montuno ("A la Manera Cubana", "La Primavera") is played classically on the three double stringed tres guitar and complemented by the softer woodwinds of flute and saxophone. Exhilarating, even gratifying is the album's Chachacha ("La Habana Vieja")! The wonderful, precise accents of the classic syncopation of the 2/4-beat recall the famed "Oye como va" by Santana. Under the rythmic guidance of claves, timbales, congas and maracas, the contra bass and piano feel wonderfully free, a lively expression of an irrepressible music, an irrepressible joy of life! Salsa! Azugar!Azugar!

Brasilianische Rhythmen vom Feinsten! (..some of the finest brasilian rhythms..)
Not only were well known standards interpreted with a new touch, but also Antonio Koudele's own compositions were most impressive.

where each transition was perfectly balanced ... Süddeutsche Zeitung
