Composer, leader of many groups and co-founder of the Aspen Edities label, it is with his guitar that Gent-born Ruben Machtelinckx built a name for himself. An explorer at heart, he enjoys taking flight through all kinds of sounds, from jazz to ancestral folk and electronic music. For his first solo project, he wanted to move away from the guitar tradition and went for the banjo. Both gentle and wild, his melodies travel across unchartered territories, exuding minimalism. His compositions charm, intrigue and impress, his multifaceted universe ravishes you. Just enjoy the journey!
