Boris Shulman has graduated from Saint Petersburg`s Musorgskiy music college, where he studied classical guitar as his major.After that, he tried himself in various bands, playing traditional jazz, hard rock, psychedelic art rock and even stoner doom metal on such instruments as guitar, bass, banjo and organ, doing vocals all along the way. In between he graduated for the second time with a degree in mandarin and spent a year in China, where he got inspired by chinese traditional music and started studying another instrument – guzheng.

What he is doing now, is trying to combine all this musical experience with nothing but an acoustic guitar in his hands and his voice, using folk\blues fingerstyle as the basis. In his set you can find old american gospels and english folk songs as well as cover versions of The Kinks, Led Zeppelin and Janis Joplin. He plays his own stuff too.

This trip to Belgium is going to be his first step as a travelling street musician. Its been his lifetime dream, now its coming true…
