Bio

FLOATING STONE is more than just an instrumental duo comprised of two outstanding musicians fusing crisp finger style acoustic guitar playing with Asian and African rhythmns. FLOATING STONE bring smiles, "hoots and hollers," and general enjoyment to its audiences - from Germany to the United States, and most countries in between. FLOATING STONE includes Jeff Augs unique fingerstylings on acoustic steel-string guitar and Niko Lai on the African percussion instrument called the udu. Audiences mixed with the young and old, punkrockers, classical enthusiasts, techno-heads, blues fans, and critical jazz efficiandos have let their jaws drop in awe while they applaud because they cannot really believe what they just saw and heard.

The Washington, D.C. born guitarist Jeff Aug magically intertwines indian and oriental lines with funk grooves to the delight of their fans. Such has he performed (over 1000 concerts) as support for Rush, Queensryche, Albert Lee, and Freaky Fukin Weirdoz. Niko Lai performs as a foil to Jeffs playing having studied percussion under Amit Battacharia (indian classical percussion), Mustafa Tete Addy (West African Drum Culture), Benny Mokross, and Charly Antolini (jazz).
