SuperString Theory Goes To Senegal just released!

Yep, it's finally here. An electric violin-driven world fusion extravaganza, this hour long CD is music that I wrote and recorded in Senegal in January 2006 and Vermont and features some wonderful African and American musicians. Barou Sall on hoddu (small West African banjo) and Pape Sakho on kora (West African harp) were recorded in Senegal at the beautiful coastal retreat of Sobobade along with the amazing Sobobade Drummers. Back in Vermont (thanks to my daughter Sheyna) I met and recorded 3 songs with local Brattleboro high school student and Ethiopian vocalist Helen Kerlin-Smith who sings in Amharic. Also featured on the CD are Tony Vacca on balafon, spoken word and percussion, Jo Sallins on bass, Erik Lawrence on flute and Steve Leicach on talking drum. The CD release party at The Common Ground Restaurant on May 4 was a great success! We had a well-attended show with Tony, Jo, Erik and Helen performing at the historic Common Ground. It was great to be back there and to get the crowd up and dancing just like we used to do in the old days. Tons o' fun. SuperString Theory Goes To Senegal can be purchased locally in Brattleboro at Turn It Up!, In The Moment, Everyone's Books and Brattleboro Books.
