Ali is a guitarist from Edinburgh, Scotland. Classically trained, but has a genre-defying style that is far flung from classical guitar. With heavy influence from artists such as Rodrigo y Gabriela, to Santana, to KT Tunstall, Ali has developed a unique blend of percussive guitar and loop mastery, to create an original sound that gets hands clapping, hips shaking and feet stomping.
Ali has performed at the Ards Guitar Festival, Belfast Guitar Festival, London Guitar Night, and is the founder of the Edinburgh Guitar Night, the premier showcase for guitarists in Scotland's capital city.
