Guy Buttery & Host John Schaefer
From

South African guitarist Guy Buttery visits the studio to perform music from his latest self-titled record. Hear virtuosic feats of bending, tapping, picking, harmonics, and other techniques and textures yet to be named for guitar. Dig into his latest record on which he has collaborated with South African musicians Vusi Mahlasela, kora-to-guitar wizard Derek Gripper, and blues guitarist Dan Patlansky, along with a piece for sarangi and mbira – “From Srinagar.”

Guy Buttery plays a custom-made Casimi guitar, a “piano that fits in a guitar case,” made of very dense & heavy African blackwood, and sporting double carbon-fiber truss rods to handle the bending of the neck. 

Plus, music from the late Malian guitarist and griot Tiécoro Sissoko, who played for many years as a sideman with Toumani Diabate in Bamako.  Listen to the title track from his only recording, “Keme Borama.”
