He is a dedicated, hardworking and talented guitarist. He reminds me of Alirio Diaz when he was younger.
By the way there are a lot of young Asian guitarists that reach the same level of technique at a young age.
I don't think that questioning whether or not he is eleven years old indicates prejudice of any sort. Speculations, sure.
I am quite sure he is a dedicated, and hard working guitarist. He is obviously talented beyond the usual eleven year old in his understanding of the music.
Many young guitarists can play the notes and some even have that level of technique. What makes him different is the fact that he plays from the heart with an understanding beyond his years.
I did not have the great fortune to see Alirio Diaz when he was younger, so I have no point of reference save that which I have seen locally and on youtube.
When the sun shines, bask.
Classical Guitar forever!
