This is Joe Moraya a brilliant Peruvian electric guitarist who plays for tourists on the streets. His unique-looking guitar and playing style is admired by many passers-by.
Lots of videos have been surfacing across the internet of Joe performing cover songs on the guitar such as Dire Straights, and The Good The Bad & The Ugly. A video that really has gained a lot of attention recently is the one below, which involves another musician, playing a saw.
We are not sure who Joe’s busking saw-playing friend is, but we know we love the sound of it! The video has been shared across the world, with many people commenting on how unique and creative the saw instrument is.
Although seen above playing with his saw-wielding friend, Joe often busks alone, playing solo lead guitar over backing tracks of popular songs.
His unique look also attracts people to his music. You can barely see his face in the videos due to the Asian conical hat he wears, but this special look makes him a brandable enigma.
Joe has become a bit of an internet busking legend, with many YouTube channels uploading videos of him performing. We couldn’t find any social media accounts that were officially run by Joe, but you can find many more videos of him performing by doing a simple Google search for his name.
