VIDEO: Badi Assad Plays "To Reach My Heart"

On tour to promote her new album Between Love and Luck, Brazilian guitarist Badi Assad dropped by Acoustic Guitar's studio for a chat and quick performance.

After racking up numerous honors for her guitar playing in the 1990s, Assad's career was put on hold when, in 1998, she was afflicted with focal dystonia, a neurological condition that forced her to put down her guitar for more than two years. After extensive rehabilitation, Assad resumed writing songs and recording. 

Look for our interview with Assad in the September issue of the magazine. 

As a bonus, we convinced her to demonstrate her experimental vocal techniques at the end of the clip.
