Lauri Manner, a DIY punk / hardcore bassist, is also an acoustic fingerstyle guitarist from Oulu, Finland. He plays hypnotic, rhythmic and rootsy instrumental acoustic guitar music under the stage name Kadonnut Manner ("the lost continent"). His raw and cinematic sound invokes vivid imagery, and he's currently taking it on his third European tour in March-April 2019. The music draws its influences from John Fahey school of American Primitive Guitar playing, country blues of Skip James and Mississippi John Hurt and Finnish folk music, but it doesn't require any prior knowledge from the listener, only an open mind.

Kadonnut Manner features lots of open tunings, hot syncopation and driving rhythms and experiments with expanding the country blues form with things borrowed from different folk traditions, 20th century classical music and other inspiring sources. Expect a deep journey into unseen worlds created by just one steel stringed acoustic guitar.
