Pulse – Friday 29th.
Featuring Tommee, Spankinhide and Trails of Light.
Tommee (of Tommee and the Neighbourhood)
Born in the heart of the jungle on Sumbawa Island, Indonesia, TOMMEE’s musical journey began amidst the natural & percussive sounds of village life where his talent blossomed on numerous traditional Indonesian instruments. Moving to Bali, TOMMEE entertained both locals & tourists before emigrating to Australia where he joined & toured extensively with Afro-Caribbean legends KALABASH, sharing the stage with icons such as JIMMY CLIFF, THE WAILERS, PAUL SIMON & UB40. TOMMEE’s skill on both the Kecapi & guitar crosses cultural barriers & transcends the musical boundaries of roots, reggae, blues, latin & afro-beats in an exotic mix that forms his own “Urban Jungle Groove”.
SPANKINHIDE performs the driving rhythms of West Africa with passion & precision. This is Absolut 95% proof dance music!
ZORMIWASA presents the Woodford Theatre Co’s ‘Trails of Light’ for Pulse. Up to 100 drummers, having trained with teacher Elliott Orr play the finely tuned rhythms Abodan & Sabar.
