Jimi Kara and the Bluesos

Jimi Kara is blues, rock and shred – with a "punch to the head". Usually a live phenomenon in New Zealand and occasionally in Australia, Jimi Kara may just be New Zealand's greatest young blues guitarist.

Joe Satriani described him as "one of the most prolific guitarists I’ve ever seen". Living Colour founder Vernon Reid dubbed him "Jimi Hendrix reincarnated", and Jason Becker, one of the greatest shredders of all time, emailed Kara after he saw his video on YouTube to say he really thought Kara's playing was great. High praise indeed!
