Usman Riaz ist ein 21-jähriges Wunderkind im perkussiven Gitarrenspiel, das er erlernt hat, indem er sich Videos seiner Helden auf YouTube angesehen hat. Der TED Fellow spielt auf TEDGlobal 2012 auf der Bühne, gefolgt von einem beeindruckenden Solo des Meisters des perkussiven Gitarrenspiels, Preston Reed. Den Abschluss macht eine sehr spontane Improvisation der beiden.
