À 21 ans, Usman Riaz est un génie de la guitare percussive, un style qu'il a appris en regardant ses héros sur YouTube. Ce TED fellow joue sur la scène de TEDGlobal 2012, suivi d'un bouleversant solo du maître de la guitare percussive, Preston Reed. Voyez ces deux guitaristes se lancer dans une improvisation spontanée.
