Balalaika by Stepan Rak played by Tom Ward

Today I happened upon a young Flamenco guitarist busking on the Circular Quay pier
strobing his mermaid, sorry guitar. His style although definitely Classical Flamenco was somewhat reminiscent of the Chapman Stick players posted here recently ( 1 & 2 ) but had more of an ethnic gypsy feel.

On the pier today he played a hybridized rhythmic fusion of classical Balalaika flamenco and frenetic improvisation;

This demo video however is from Tom Ward's new EP, Guitar Recital.
