Greece was wonderful!
Currently in Tirana, Albania, we are nearing the end of our tour. I think I can speak for the whole band by saying we are tired, but our hearts are full. I am going to post photos and video from the tour through the mountains of Northern Greece and the fantastic workshops we did with the students, but as yet have not had the time to put it together. Thankfully, Antonis Varvatsoulias from the Foundation of Thracian Art & Tradition emailed me this video clip which is a glimpse into one of our shows.
I have really enjoyed engaging the audience to add a rhythmic element, and actually become part of my drum solo in the Charlie Parker tune Billies Bounce. Thankfully again, most of the audiences have pretty good rhythm:)
more to come…..
