Projeto Arcomusical BH and the Swazi musicians!

Projeto Arcomusical BH goes to Africa

Images alone cannot suffice to summarize the series of incredible experiences I had during my first trip to Africa to share the Arcomusical berimbau repertoire and to study African musical bows. After an incredible week at the Bow Music Conference:

I spent another week traveling through Mozambique, Cape Town, and Durban to spend time with bow practitioners and to learn more about the various traditions of bow playing in each region. I will be bringing back some very funky instruments to the States in April!

I am very thankful to my new friends and musical brethren: Sazi Dlamini, Dizu Plaatjies, Luka Mukhavele, Mestre Cobra Mansa, Mama Bavikile, and many more who gave of themselves and their music during this time.

muito axé para todos!

    I was very encouraged to meet so many people, who are seriously involved with music bows. Lets keep it up!
