Born in Aubervilliers (93) in 1978,  mastering perfectly the italian, french and english language, Antonio Martino is his original name. He was cradle in his childhood by all of the traditional folkloric music of Calabre in southern Italy. His ears and his heart where marked by these musical heritage. Open by the multicultural confrontation due to his past french education in France, it's in his diverse surrounding that important meeting has occured. The blues in his intellectual form evolved and got materialized by a influence towards Rock/Electro taste.

Migaso started guitar late at the age of 19 years old. Till then, he only knew about the music played on the radio. His friends brought him on road trips in south Italy playing at full volume Iron Maiden, Joe Satriani and Eric Johnson. One day, one of his friend introduces him to his brother, Frank Barrovecchio who played some Hendrix and Steve Ray Vaughan: His life completely change...

Working the day, playing guitar at night: he is learning the blues with this little genious. It became an obsession. He discovers some of the classics from Jimi Hendrix "Live at Fillmore East" and "Blues" in which the title "Machine Gun" and "Born under a bad sign" marked his life.

Migaso is devouring these new sounds, opens up to this knew culture eager to know more. For the first time, artists like B.B. King, John Lee Hooker, Albert King, James Brown are transposing him all the meaning and feeling that is possible to do with only a few notes.

Migaso still, doesn't forget his calabrian origins that relates him to the folkloric songs of the area as well as italian pop music. The famous "Calabrian Blues" takes a nostalgic and melodic side, he is reaching to musicians like Ligabue or De André, without forgetting Lucio Battisti, since the heritage of italian music is rich and diverse.

He has choosen the symbol of a black and white chimera where the notify eye will meet the wise dragon, mystical, with the lone wolf who yells his sorrow under the moonlight. Those two emblematic figures associated with the designer style "Taobé" shows through black and white contrasts all the values conveying to this musical tendency immerse of different style.
