Gottfried David Gfrerer – Luiza


This piece is one of my personal favourites for summertime. I recorded it some years ago with my buddy Haja Herivao Randrianaivomahefa from Madagascar. He thought it reminded him a little bit of the music from Zaire or Tansania, so I named it “Luiza”.
The guitar is an early 1928/29 National Triolian with a wooden body. The cover plate was missing when I got it. Quite challenging to match the original polychrome colors… 🙂
