4th Saturday of the Month
Give me music that’s outta this world! Music that has drama, that comes from a place we don’t know and cant go in body. Music that’s got guts, got spirit, got soul. I want to hear something that splits me in 2 and something that brings me as 1.
I look for that music and I play it.
I love music of the Caribbean; Ska, Calypso, rub-a-dub and beyond. Riffs, rhythms, sounds, songs and singers. I trace things back to their roots through the folk songs and cultures; west African rhythms and stories. Then I trace them forward on a different continent. Delve into the blues, jazz, funk/soul, hip hop.
Then forward on another continent; Samba, Son, Mambo. Back again and then explore the fusions.
Music is like a map and the songs hold the cultures within them, so I keep digging.
I’m a multi-instrumentalist, musician and producer. I play bass with THE GRAND UNION ORCHESTRA (www.grandunion.org.uk), ANIMANZ (www.animanz.com), ZANTOGOLA, and more world/jazz fusion groups (www.muscialdojo.com). I play guitar and sing with the RE:GENERATION BAND and my own jazz trio. My production duo SUPER MODELS has many recordings and upcoming releases featuring the musicians from all of these projects.
