The fact that Mark Knopfler has inspired many young people around the world, we can confirm with this blog post.
Namely, Laila, who is an 18-years-old amateur musician and lives in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, shares her guitar skills on her Instagram profile. She has shared a short solo video of the song “Sultans of Swing”. Below the video, she has added a description: “Some Mark Knopfler vibes here!”.
For Dire Straits Blog she shared how she found out about Dire Straits and their music.
“I love music and I can’t really choose a favorite band. But, I’d say that I love heavy metal. I started with listening to Dire Straits when I was 6-years-old. My father is their big and loyal fan. He’d play Brothers in Arms album every time when I was around the home. In my opinion that is their greatest album. It was one of the first bands that I got to know. Probably the first one!” she said.
On this occasion, Laila shared that in the future she would try to make more solo videos from the songs of Dire Straits. Probably if you visit her Instagram profile, you will find more videos than pictures. She is always with the guitar in her hands.
Laila is a young musician amateur and if she continues at this pace, she will reach a large number of fans around the world. Of course, Dire Straits is one of her best opportunities to learn and upgrade herself and her guitar skills.
