With influences ranging from Chet Atkins and Les Paul, to Frank Zappa and Taraff de Hadouks, bebop virtuosos Charlie Parker and Wes Montgomery, the gypsy guitar masters Django Reinhardt and Birell Laurene and the British and Celtic legends John Martyn, Pentangle and Moving Hearts, Madi draws on an astoundingly rich range of styles.
