The artist/musician performs mesmerizing world trance textures and driving melodic gypsy grooves with passion and purpose on an amazing arsenal of amplified hybrid string instruments made from household objects and tools. Duchampian Dada meets Hybrid Hindu Hendrix.

"Ken Butler is an astonishing performer who delivers fiery world-infused compositions not unlike a Hindu avatar coming to "burn the midnight lamp".With releases on John Zorn's Tzadik label he has established his reputation across the globe as a pioneer of guitar and dental hygeine. Expect to gain a new appreciation for hockey sticks and snow shovels." - Knitting Factory press

"One of music's most ingenious and eccentric personalities." - John Zorn
