I first heard Oran Etkin and Kelenia (pronounced kel-en-EE-ya) at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City, opening for Yemen Blues. I was struck with the freshness of their sound, and wished my footage had come out better. So regardless of the hazards of shooting in a crowded converted conference room at the Hilton, I figured it was worth a try capturing them again when they played at the APAP convention in NYC.

Welcome!

Here’s where you’ll find my weekly original world music video blogs that appear on Huffington Post, as well as an archive starting in April of 2009.

This is also the place where you will find video that is exclusive to my site. I’ve traveled to places like Uzbekistan, Morocco, and Taiwan and no matter where I go I have found amazingly talented and creative people working in every genre from the deepest traditions to the cutting edge.

It’s been incredibly rewarding to interview them and to capture some of what they do on video. Enjoy what you see and hear, and let me know what you think. I welcome your feedback.
