Busking Virtuoso Estas Tonne

Is Hugh Jackman, Estas Tonne’s Twin Brother?

This is my first exposure to Estas Tonne. Maybe he is Hugh Jackman’s long lost twin or what.

Watch his face. Now watch the crowd’s faces. He is transporting them to another place.

Classical purists might not be totally on board but this is exactly the sort of impassioned, accessible creativity that inspires me. It’s been a long time but that look of total absorption reminds me of the feeling I always followed when practicing guitar: being lost in the vibe improvisation.

The incense wedged in the guitar headstock is an interesting touch.

    Introduced to Estas Tonne for first time today – Genius as beauty. I’m transported and still listening to one off another website: http://estastonne.bandcamp.com/

    Touches the soul.
