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. His name became synonymous with contemporary acoustic guitar genius, long before the terms New Age, New Acoustic Music or World Music were invented.

Pierre has the ability to make a single guitar sound like an entire band as he brings the audience on a mesmerizing musical journey. He is a composer as well as a bilingual and a brave improvisational vocalist, melding whistles and resonant low notes with something like his own scat technique. His "manner" of playing defies classification - crossing world, classical, jazz, traditional, folk and more.
