“It was amazing! When is the next one?


great show last night

Colchester was the last city we visited last night with Afrodisiac. This was an experimental production devised by Welsh composer Charlie Barber. I had also a fabulous time with my long time friend Chartwell Dutiro, a master of the Mbira. Visuals were provided by Raul Seek.

With classical, African and Latin influences, I truly enjoyed being part of this and I hope that those of you who came loved the journey.

For those who would like to find out more and hear some of the extracts, you can check Charlie Barber’s website.
