Perfect Strangers is poised to further push the boundary of contemporary acoustic fusion guitar, as fans of jazz, flamenco and progressive-rock are fast becoming a significant new audience in world fusion.

Roman Miroshnichenko: - "This May we came together for a very first time as a cohesive team and did an excellent live shows! I guess this fact explains our joint album’s name (Perfect Strangers). After one of our TV-performances we said that we're gonna be recording June and July. Then we worked very hard to leave an impression on fans of guitar music and we'll be very glad if they’ll be impressed!"

One of the biggest guitar festivals in Europe, the "World of Guitar" took place in Kaluga, Russia, on the 25th - 29th of May, 2015. Previous years have seen leading musicians from more than 30 countries take part in the festival. Among them were: Paco De Lucia, Al Di Meola, John Mclaughlin, Steve Vai, Larry Coryell, Leo Brower, Vicente Amigo, to name but a few. This year's 18th annual festival began with a concert of an excellent collaborative effort from three of the finest acoustic guitarists of new generation in Europe: Henrik Andersen (Denmark), Jose Antonio Rodriguez (Spain) and Roman Miroshnichenko (Russia). Throughout incredible guitar show, the trio demonstrated their fantastic instrumental skills, musicality and deep knowledge of jazz, flamenco, Latin, Indian and Mediterranean rhythms. This is sympathetic, emotional musicianship, where each musician complements each other instead of trying to out-do the other. This year the guitar trio plans fall tour Russia and Europe.

After sold-out world premiere in Slovenia last year, the Godfather of fusion Larry Coryell brought "War and Peace, The Opera, based on War and Peace written by Leo Tolstoy, to Russia. On 29th May, at one of the biggest guitar festivals in Europe, the "World of Guitar", a new and vibrant production by Larry Coryell, featuring "The Russian Philharmonic Orchestra", from Moscow, along with a jazz trio of Russia's most prominent guitarist, Roman Miroshnichenko, Serbian classical guitarist Nenad Stephanovich and Slovenian Academy of music Ljubljana choir was well received in Kaluga Philharmonic Hall.

Larry Coryell: - "This work is intended to touch listeners' hearts with the simple but often-misunderstood message about the sanctity of peace. By "peace" I mean to say not just the absence of violence but a pro-active statement that means: peace is the way. Like so many operas, this work is of a tragic nature. It is the story of Russia's struggle and eventual victory (at great cost) with Napoleon's voracious armed forces in the early 19th century. My heart requests nothing more than just that . . . to bring happiness to whomever hears this, and thus to spur the forward progression of humanity."

Roman Miroshnichenko: - "Every time I play with Larry the only thing I can say to myself is: how he can be so incredibly brilliant and overfull of ideas! Larry definitely is one of the legendary guitarists who has influenced all other
