In the face of digitailzed and computerized music technology the old guitar has had a remarkable rennaissance in the popular music. And whenever the great guitar-instrumentals in the history of European popular music are discussed, the name and one track must be mentioned: Blonker and "Indigo".
In the late Seventies the young group from Hamburg surprised the wolrd with that laidback, gently melancholic piece titled "Indigo". Without a big promotion campaign "Indigo" became massive airplay and was soon considered a classic of this genre.
In 1979 Blonker turned from a regular group into a one-man-project. Dieter Geike, the man, who had written "Indogo"and defined the sound of the band with his immaculate guitar playing, carried on alone and started a quiet, but impressive solo career. Since the cretaion of the gem "Indigo", Geike alias Blonker has further developed and refined his vision of beautiful, timeless, melodic instrumental guitar music on a series of gighly acclaimed and successful albums.
