Syndactyly – “It’s a visual thing.”
Syndactyly was released in September 2015. This instrumental DVD contains 11 visual tracks and showcases this maestro’s unbelievable guitar skills.
Loki was born with his middle fingers and ringers stuck together on both hands. This condition is known as Syndactyly. He underwent twenty-three operations as a toddler and received extensive physiotherapy to isolate and strengthen his fingers.
Who would have thought that 24 years later, Loki would have numerous hit singles chart on radio and would own 32 string instruments – anything from a banjo to a lap steel.
