Sat Feb 25 West End - Pulse feat. Greg Sheehan's Time Travellers

Posted on behalf of Talkin' the Drum...

Lovers of World music!!
Here you go, yet another great Pulse rolls your way!
This month we are very pleased to present Greg Sheehan's latest musical exploration. For those of you unfamiliar with Greg Sheehan, let me simply say that Greg is respected by the musical community as having pioneered many exciting and magical rhythmic phenomena. He is a folk music legend. Bands he has led or played in include 'Coolangubra', 'Utungan Percussion' and more recently 'Skin' and 'The circle of rhythm'. This time he collaborates with 3 other musicians to create "Time Travellers".
"Time Travellers" include Matt Ostilla on yidaki (didgeridoo) and jaws harp, Matt Hill on space bass-banjo (an invention of Steve Langton) and Laura Targett on fiddle. Greg will play percussion and percussed guitar!
There are two other acts this Pulse.
Zormiwasa, made up of Josie and my drumming and dance students, presents as three groups. The first group performs a Zimbabwean rhythm called Jiti, the second group performs another Zimbabwean rhythm called Dine plus a Congolese rhythm called Aossombi. The third group will perform both the drumming and dance for a piece from Burkina Faso called Kluma. Zormiwasa will open the night at around 8pm.
To close Pulse this Saturday is Spankinhide. As an 8-piece we're primed to play a solid set of absolute dance music!! We include myself (Elliott), Oliver Jackson, Derek Swaney, Piers Langford, Charles Wall, Pauly Bromley, Matt Hill and Lansana Camara, or Sana for short. Sana comes from Guinea, West Africa and much of the music we play is derived directly from his culture's rich repertoire. Its a great honour for us to inlcude Sana in our group and we know that you'll enjoy what he brings to an allready pumping rhythm ensemble. Bring your dancing feet!
