If world music pays tribute to the spirit of a collection of human beings through distinct rhythms, traditional instruments, and harmonic colors, then French-Algerian guitarist, singer, and composer Pierre Bensusan can be recognized as one of the most eloquent world musicians today.
Pierre Bensusan is described by the L.A. Times as “one of the most unique and brilliant acoustic guitar veterans in the world music scene today.”
Bensusan’s name became synonymous with “contemporary acoustic guitar genius,” long before the terms “new age,” “new acoustic music,” or “world music” were invented.
He has the ability to make a single guitar sound like an entire band as he brings the audience on a mesmerizing musical journey.
Bensusan is more than what any musician or music lover expects from a guitarist. He is a composer as well as a bilingual and a brave improvisational vocalist, melding whistles and resonant low notes with his own scat technique.
Pierre Bensusan is not to be missed!
He performs “the way the guitar would want to sound if it played itself,” relayed Nyack News and Views
