It has been a while since I’ve posted here: the past few months have been a hectic season of constant traveling! Highlights were a solo tour in India, which took me, aside from several of the largest cities, to Nagaland in the extreme northeast of the country; solos at the KRAAK festival in Aalst, Belgium and the Stadtgarten in Cologne, Germany; participating in Tarek Atoui’s “(Re)visiting Tarab” in Sharjah, UAE; a 9-city tour of Denmark with Burkina Electric; and a research trip doing field recordings at soccer games in Uruguay and Brazil, in preparation for a sound installation commissioned by the Goethe Institute. In between, I got to spend some quality time in South Africa, which is becoming my home away from home. But now, as summer attacks NYC, I’m back and ready for a flurry of concerts at the Stone, the Gershwin Hotel, Bowery Poetry Club, and another Benefit of Clergy run at the Ange Noir Café, formerly the Café Orwell. Stay tuned!
