Diego Figueiredo, a Brazilian guitarist of world wide fame, is a composer and player of the highest caliber.

''Diego wrote the title track, Antarctica while performing aboard a Seabourn cruise to the world's southernmost continent....the segments of this solo piece reflect the mystery and uncertainty of what was to come, the joy of stepping on Antarctica's terra firma after four days at sea, and feeling of child-like delight while watching penguins at play,''
