Marc Ribot is one of the most original guitarists of our time. Winner of the Grammy award for the album „Rasing Sand” with Robert Plant. He also collaborates regularly with composer John Zorn. Marc Ribot was born in Newark, New Jersey. After moving to New York in 1978, Ribot became a member of Realtones, and from 1984 to 1989 Lounge Lizards with John Lurie. The artists with whom he has been recording will include such characters as Tom Waits, John Lurie, Elvis Costello, Arto Lindsay, Laurie Anderson, McCoy Tyner, The Jazz Passengers, The Lounge Lizards, Evan Lurie, Medeski Martin Wood, James Carter and others. Marc Ribot composed music for „Walk The Line”, „Everything is Illuminated” and „The Departed” by Martin Scorsese. His talent is also revealed during concerts with a full symphony orchestra. Currently, he is touring with two bands: a project in honor of Albert Ayler Spiritual Unity with the participation of bassist Ayler Henry Grimes and Ceramic Dog with the participation of bassist Shahzad Ismaily and drummer Ches Smith. Ceramic Dog in April 2018, after five years since the last release, release the most-awaited third album, which begins with the words: „I got a right to say FUCK YOU !!!”. The uncompromising approach to music and Ribot’s characteristic style have made him one of the most recognizable guitarists, and the Ceramic Dog project is the best example of this.
