French-Algerian guitarist, singer and composer Pierre Bensusan can be called one of the most eloquent and diverse world musicians of our time. Born in what is now Algeria, Pierre moved to Paris with his family. when he was four. Influenced in those early days by the folk revival blooming in Britain, France, and North America, he began first to explore his own diverse musical heritage and then moved to the horizons beyond. At 17 he signed his first recording contract. Described by the L.A. Times as "one of the most unique and brilliant acoustic guitar veterans in the world music scene today", Pierre Bensusan has been voted Best World Music Guitar Player by Guitar Player Magazine Readers Choice. He has the ability to make a single guitar sound like an entire band as he brings the audience on a mesmerizing musical journey. There is a sense of something both playful and serious in his work, an unparalleled sense of freedom in his compositions and his improvisations. His "manner" of playing defies classification—crossing among world, classical, jazz, traditional, folk and more. No one piece can be isolated as simply “Brazilian,""Arabic," or “French”; rather, they represent our world in its current state, a world sharing itself, fusing cultures together in ways we have never experienced. Not to be missed!
