#Paris a few weeks back. Last summer, looking with Athens eyes, the city felt frenzied scowling and expensive. But this summer it was magic. #35mm #film
A year ago today @b_nugz @sublimefrequencies and I were on our way to Western Sahara for Oulaya's Wedding. Now the film is nearly done, we're planning an east coast tour with #GroupDoueh, and I'm sitting in Greece looking at this photo of an overstuffed wedding tent at dusk. #westernsahara #architecture #travel #film
Jimmy Bongo and supporting crew, Kakamega Kenya. Bongo played Nairobi clubs for years with the Bongo Boys. He recently lost his eyesight, and felt up and down the guitar neck trying to bring back the old songs. He remembered two, soft and gorgeous. They both made it to the final record of old man guitar music from Kenya, coming in September. #kenya #portrait #goldenage
Zachariah Omufumbwa, Kenyan guitarist of the omutibo style, Spring 2016. Zachariah's music is prominently featured on a new album of songs from western Kenya coming to you soon from Raw Music International / #MississippiRecords / #OlvidoRecords #Kenya #portrait #luhya
Finishing touches on THREE new vinyl records of gorgeous acoustic guitar music from #Kenya. Look out for those in September. Going thru photos from last year's recording trip. It was the end of the rainy season, yet the sky went dark and unleashed torrents daily. Some of my favorite moments-- cool and heavy and blue right before the rain.
#Keratsini #Athens #Greece a neighborhood for refugees from Asia Minor 100 years ago and the Middle East today. City through the shades on a hot evening, celebrating #Eid.
#Paris, heat wave. Tonight is the big release party for a book we worked on with the great Hisham Mayet of @sublimefrequencies. It's called the Photographs of Charles Duvelle. Come thru the Musée du quai Branly to meet them if you're here!
