Guilhem Desq breathes new life and innovation into this old-world instrument, the hurdy gurdy. His sound is unmistakable as he electrifies this originally acoustic instrument and plays a wide variety of genres on it – anything from traditional European folk to Middle-Eastern, contemporary rock, hip-hop and electro.
After a year touring worldwide with more than 60 shows (India, USA, New Zealand, Israël, Bulgaria, Italy, France…) Guilhem Desq comes back to release his first solo album “Visions”. An album “100% hurdy gurdy” which feature original songs recorded from his instrument as the only source of sounds. Not only an album but a whole project which is going beyond music, from building his instrument to directing and animating his latest music video “Le château magique”.
