Spaghetti Eastern


Spaghetti Eastern Music is the genre-leaping solo project of NYC & Hudson Valley-based guitarist/keyboardist Sal Cataldi. Spaghetti Eastern Music marries acid jazz-fueled guitar instrumentals with bare-bones acoustic ballads straight out of the Nick Drake school. Cataldi debuted the project with the critically-acclaimed 2016 album, “Sketches of Spam,” which has been followed with a number of EPs and singles. The New York Times says Cataldi “has a beat unmistakably his own” while Time Out New York praises his "the delicate guitar work and the hauntingly moody atmosphere he conjures.” Called “beautiful and unique” by WFUV’s Mixed Bag and “charmingly melodic and off-center” by WFMU. Hudson Valley One has called Spaghetti Eastern “part Sergio Leone fever dream, part Ravi Shankar raga, a whirling dervish of musical creation.” Chronogram Magazine called his most recent release, the exploratory solo guitar score for the dance piece 2x2x4,“cool, melodic, inspired and transcendent, a wave of sonic warmth and light.” Psychedelic Baby Magazine calls it “the perfect sonic tonic for these trouble times.” Cataldi is also a member of the ambient guitar guo Guitars A Go Go, the poetry/music project Vapor Vespers and the psych/surf quartet, Spaceheater.
