Nearly a year since my last post so good to see I’m keeping these updates regular. In all honesty, the past year has been relatively quiet so there hasn’t been all that much to talk about but I do have some exciting things coming up that I wanted to share with you all.
Firstly, on 9th March at 5:30pm, I’ll be playing at the Wigmore Hall as part of Duo Chorinho, a duo with pianist, Sam Watts. The concert is themed around different areas of the world and so we’ve chosen lots of interesting and beautiful pieces of music from different cultures. It should be a great concert and it’s all being produced and promoted by a group of teenagers from Tower Hamlets AND it’s free! So many reasons to come and listen. More info / tickets here.
Then, later in March I’m going to be recording for Maria Chiara Argirò‘s debut album. I’ve been playing with Maria Chiara’s band for a year or so now and it’s been amazing fun, we’ve travelled around a lot, doing concerts in Rome, Florence, Paris and UK, and we’ve made lots of great music so I can’t wait to put it all onto an album. Keep your eyes peeled for the album release later this year.
And finally, some new videos to share with you. This year I joined Misha Mullov-Abbado‘s Group, I’ve loved listening to the band’s music previously and have played a lot with some of the original members, so it’s been a perfect fit coming into the band and playing Misha’s music. We’ve done two gigs so far this year, one in January at the Vortex Jazz Club and one just the other week at the Riverhouse Arts Centre. We’ve got one coming up on 20th March at Omnibus Arts Centre in Clapham, so do come along if you’d like to hear us play. To get an idea of what the band sounds like, you can check out these videos that were recorded at our Vortex gig:
Tata for now and more updates soon.
