"One of the most unique and brilliant acoustic guitar veterans in the world music scene today"- LA Times
French-Algerian guitarist, Pierre Bensusan, tours internationally, taking his unique sound to all corners of the globe. Recording since 1975, he has released fourteen critically acclaimed CDs, including the live triple CD titled Encore (Winner of the Independent Music Award), and most recently, AZWAN (2019).
Voted Best World Music Guitarist by Guitar Player Magazine reader’s Poll, winner of the Rose d’Or at the Montreux Festival for his debut album, Pierre is recognized as one of the greatest guitar players of the 21st century.
Immortalized by the tune “Bensusan” written in tribute by the late Michael Hedges, and referenced as an important inspiration to many other great musicians, Pierre Bensusan is a one-of-a-kind artist who transcends genre and time, with an uninhibited sense of freedom and expression. His playing defies classification - crossing world, classical, jazz, traditional, folk, pop and more. None can be isolated as “World Music”, “Celtic”, "Arabic" or “French”; rather, they represent Pierre’s genuine vocabulary and the best part of our world - a world sharing itself.
Lowden Guitars, issued a Pierre Bensusan signature model, to celebrate their 40th anniversary.
