Click on the MP3 player if you’d like to hear some of the music I’ve been up to lately. Also the entire Acoustic Mandala Project album streams from it’s own tab on this site.

Currently I am performing with

Dana Hanchard – Dana is a powerhouse musician, at home in Baroque and Opera as well as jazz and afro-carribean styles.

Famorro Diabate’s Kakande.  Famoro is griot from a caste of musicians who have been perfoming music for over 800 years.  The grooves are deep and irresistible.kakande

Karavan Kosmiko (Jimmy Cruiz, Dana Hanchard, Ruben Gonzales, Babatunde Don Eaton, Michael D’agostino)  This is true organic, global roots music. Joyful and spontaneous.

I’m hoping to release recordings this year with Debashish Bhattacharya, the great slide guitarist of India, Oumar Konate of Mali and percussionist Michael D’agostino.
