:) I like the guy. Where is he from?

Nice video! I'd like to see and hear more of him...

BTW, this is the 1st time I've ever seen anyone play with their fingers spread so wide apart - no wonder he has callouses on his middle & ring fingers. I do wonder if he learned this technique/hand position from his teachers, or if it's simply the most comfortable way for him to play? (Since everyone's hands - and bodies - are different.)

Don't know if you've checked out any other African players on YouTube, but if not, you're in for a treat!
