Amrit Sond: Genius or nutter?

This performance of Amrit Sond was recorded at RMMGA UK9 gathering at Hargate Hall in 2005. I heard him play this twice and, on each occasion, it was the same. At first I was like, WTF, but the more I listen to it, the more I see its musical merit. He’s pushing the boundaries of music on the acoustic guitar, and making us question the western conception of music. Amrit has an interesting background and it is manifesting itself in his music.

Oh, and he’s a humble and friendly guy with a great sense of humour. And he can also play more “conventional” music very well indeed. In fact, he won a Grammy for it.

So here’s Amrit:
