Pierre Bensusan

Pierre Bensusan

Born in Oran, French-Algeria, in 1957, when France was decolonizing its Empire, Pierre Bensusan‘s family moved to Paris when he was 4. He began formal studies on piano at the age of 7 and at 11 taught himself guitar. Influenced in those early days by the folk revival blooming in Britain, France and North America, Bensusan began first to explore his own diverse musical heritage and then moved to the horizons beyond. At 17 he signed his first recording contract, and one year later his first album Pres de Paris won the Grand Prix du Disque upon his debut at the Montreux Festival in Switzerland. 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 was voted "Best World Music Guitar Player" in 2008 by Guitar Player Magazine Readers Choice.

 

Pierre Bensusan, virtous guitarist, singer and song-writer celebrates his 35 year old career ! More than 350 000 albums, books and videos sold, more than 1500 concerts (guitar, world, jazz, classic, new age, folk, song…) and a very big fame in the US, Canada and Great Britain. 

New album to release on the 13th September 2010 !
