The End is Nigh

As my residency at Waaw Senegal draws to a close I thought I would share some more evidence of various activities including a small performance on solo violin and riti I made on the roof of Maison Waaw for the other residents and various local friends including drum teacher and riti lesson assistant interpreter Abdoukhadar Diop and Khadim Tall, a singer with whom I have worked extensively since arriving here in Saint-Louis (including recording fiddle tracks for his new album).


Images below of me working with riti master Alikha and drum instructor Abdoukhadar Diop accompanying on sabar.

My new/old acoustically centred approach to solo performance is firstly going to be aired at a performance back home in Brisbane at THE JUNK BAR, 17 Jan with The Stead As She Goes opening up around 7PM. Tickets $10. DETAILS. This is to celebrate the eventual release of my new tape STREET MUSIC VOL. 1 on CABIN FLOOR ESOTERICA the constituents of which points towards this style of down n out lonesome freak folk I've been presenting to audiences overseas of late. 

There will no doubt be another post soon enough...

My residency at Waaw Senegal was made possible with an Individual Development Grant from the Australia Council for the Arts, the Australian Government's arts funding and advisory body.
