This site is dedicated to my musical life. You'll find mp3s, videos and photos of my projects; news on upcoming concerts and albums; plus information about my teaching and workshops.
As well as teaching in the performance course at Monash University, 2017 sees me join the team at Northcote High, leading the Symphonic Band and Intermediate Stage Band, as well as teaching some great young drummers and percussionists.
Last year saw the premiere of some incredible new shows from Panorama Brasil: the new Candomble-inspired suite Chant/Call: Songs of the Gods, as well as shows featuring the music of Milton Nascimento and Djavan. To start 2017 we toured NSW, ACT, Vic and Tas with Brazilian chanteuse Alda Rezende, performing Os Afro Sambas. In 2017 we'll also be joining Vince Jones and Doug de Vries for a Jobim tribute as part of the Melbourne International Jazz Festival.
Meanwhile Asha Henfry is working hard leading her great choro/samba group, Tamandua (stay tuned for news on our upcoming recording). We're taking a break for the second half of 2017 while Asha studies in Brazil and travels through the Americas.
There will of course be the great galvanisers of Melbourne choro - Trio Agogo. and guest appearances with lots of wonderful musicians. And 2017 also sees me join Bolivian pianist Danilo Rojas for explorations in the music of his homeland.
For details on all of these events, check my GIG listings. You can also find information about all of these groups, including mp3s and videos on this site. And you can visit us on facebook, see the latest videos on the new Panorama Brasil youtube channel, check out my instagram or catch Panorama Brasil on twitter (panorama_brasil). I'm now on pinterest too, where I share a lot of great videos, photos and articles related to music and culture.
