There isn’t much information out there about Kurtzmann pianos. This one is an old warhorse in the main room of the Tribes Gallery, a long standing East Village salon of new music and poetry.

Pianist Thollem McDonas improvised a piece reminiscent of a storm-tossed sea, and when it was all over, he fished a splintered hammer (a Db, I think) out of the piano.

The occasion was a CD release party for ESP Records.

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.
