TEDGlobal 2012 Fellows Talks: A recap of Session 1

At the Lyceum Theatre today, the TEDGlobal 2012 Fellows brought audiences to their feet with two sessions of astonishing and moving talks before TEDGlobal 2012 mainstage sessions began. Here’s the rundown:
Usman Riaz, musician & artist
Usman plays guitar like an introverted genius alien from another planet who landed here, happened to pick up a guitar, and proceeded to make all the sounds its human inventors never even considered. Ringing, percussive, thoughtful, sinuous and impassioned, his performance pulls the audience along as his fingers dance across the strings.
