How does one pronounce Campilongo, as in Jim?

Just bought Jim's album, Orange, which I love. But I may have to stop listening to him if I can't get the pronunciation of his name right.

Is it CampiLONGo







And is it a hard or a soft G?

or what?

It looks like "Campilongo", but it's pronounced "Throat Warbler Mangrove".

No but seriously folks, I always thought CampiLONGo.

There are two types of guitarists in this world; those who have a Memory Man and those who need one.
