Bireli Lagrene at the Age of 13 [Video]

Here's a video of Bireli Lagrene playin at the Montreux Jazz Festival at the age of 13. Bireli Lagrene is a French guitar player who was born in a gypsy family and started playing guitar since he was 4 years old. In these beginning years he sounded very much like Django Reinhardt, but a few years later he found his own sound playing fusion and recording with Jaco Pastorius (1986).

The chops he allready had as a 13 year old are really amazing. His guitar is a bit out of tune though.
