Heitor Villa-Lobos: An Overview of His Guitar Music Heitor Villa-Lobos (1887-1959) was one of the most influential and acclaimed Latin American composers of the twentieth-century.

Dave Matthews was an exceptional player who brought something fresh to the table where the music industry was dominated by rap and grime music.
