Guest: Hub Hildenbrand (Gitarre)

© Feature Ring

Hildenbrand draws from jazz, European music, oriental and Indian heritage and reveals places that are otherwise closed to the guitar. He studied jazz and improvisation at the Rotterdam Conservatory. Through a chance encounter, Hildenbrand discovered Turkish music in cosmopolitan Berlin. In order to understand this world of sound more deeply, he enrolled at the Conservatory for Turkish Music and became a student of the oud master Nuri Karademirli, who taught him the modes and subtleties of Turkish classical music. One hears that his guitar would sometimes prefer a Turkish oud, an Indian sarod, an Afghan rabab or a Persian tar.
