    I don't know if there is a thread dedicated to him on the forum (I haven't found any), so I decided to create a new one. It's a piece of his performance at Fender's 60th Anniversary, it cannot be attributed to one music genre, it's a mix of folk, blues, jazz and other styles. Before I heard him I didn't know balalaika can sound like this (I don't khow how he tunes his instrument, but balalaika has only 3 strings, and 2 of them are usually tuned identically).
