New York (New York), USA – Algerian/French guitarist Pierre Bensusan will be performing at Makor on Tuesday, April 4th at 9:30pm. Tickets are $18. Makor is located at 35 W. 67th St. (at Central Park West), New York, NY 10023. Phone: +1 (212) 601-1000.

Bensusan has developed a bitter- sweet melodic approach to his playing. He
incorporates Folk, Celtic, Jazz, Impressionist, Brazilian, Medieval, Latin, and
North African rhythms, soulful French ballades and wordless vocals.

International tours and innovative recordings have established him as, in the words of pianist George Winston, “one of the truly gifted musicians of our time – he plays the guitar as if it were the very soul of himself.” He has recently released his 10th solo album, Altiplanos.
