World | Thibault Cauvin participates in Mastercard’s sound identity and continues his “endless” tour around the world

French classical guitarist Thibault Cauvin continues to enchant international audiences on stage but also through music to image.

Born in 1984 of a father who is a guitarist and composer, Thibault Cauvin has been playing the guitar since he was five years old. Growing up in a family of musicians, he then turned to classical training at the conservatory of Bordeaux and the National Conservatory of Paris, in which he graduated with honors. At the age of 20, he became the most awarded guitarist in the world with 36 awards.

Sound marketing and sync

His talent and fame earned him the attention of brands and audiovisual producers. He has composed and interpreted with his brother Jordan, guitarist and composer of jazz, the French version of “Sound on!” – the new sound identity of Mastercard. The project was conceived in association with the artist’s record company, Sony Music.

Thibault Cauvin also caught the interest of international audiovisual productions. The track “Mandolin Concerto in C Major, RV 425” of his album The Vivaldi Album (Sony Music France) has been synchronized to the New Zealand film The Breaker Upperers broadcasted on Netflix.

The endless tour of the absolute nomad

Thibault Cauvin is also a frequent traveller. The artist who defines himself as an “absolute nomad” began his “endless tour” 15 years ago. He has already visited nearly 120 countries, giving over 1000 performances. What’s more, the guitarist offers a “Magic Tour”: he regularly plays in iconic, atypical and magical places like the Forbidden City of Beijing, the Peace Palace of The Hague, the palm grove of Marrakech…

His “endless tour” resulted in a personal project: in his latest album Cities II (Sony Music) released in September 2018, the guitarist illustrates some great cities that have impressed him by collaborating with musicians from different fields, including Matthieu Chedid, Didier Lockwood, Erik Truffaz, Ballaké Sissoko, Lea Desandre, Thylacine, Christian-Pierre La Marca and Adélaïde Ferrière.

From mid-September, the “Little Prince of the six-string” continues his tour in Africa, Asia and Europe with his music at the crossroads of genres.
