So grateful to be collaborating with the incredible Babacar Top as part of his future West African Dance Production. We have rehearsed twice so far, and the energy we are creating has already been profoundly deep, creative, and inspired with still three more to go in the coming weeks.
Getting to perform outdoors at the Plaza at 300 Ashland in Downtown Brooklyn is a very unique opportunity. Across the street from Mark Morris Dance Center and next door to BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music), we have the energy, the sounds, and the inspiration of the city all around us. People stop and watch as we work out details creating sounds and choreography of our performance, and many stop by and say hello and thank you.
Jimmy Lopez has been a friend since we met on Instagram watching each other’s feeds. I’ve been a fan of Jimmy’s since I’ve seen his name on flyers over the years as Percussionist for DJs within House and World Music Styles throughout NYC and beyond. He is the veteran Live Percussionist at Brooklyn’s Bembé, where he accompanies DJs through entire nights of sweaty dancing rhythms.

Great session, and can’t wait to hear it finished. Josh’s songwriting choices and playing sound excellent, and Marc’s recording knowledge sculpts, adds, and deepens the songs’ sonic qualities. Very excited to be a part of these recordings.
