I'm a drummer and percussionist with a 50-year old interest in what is now called World Music. Originally a jazz drummer, my own music has become heavily influenced by Hindustani, Karnatic and West African musics which I studied during some years in India and Ghana. In my site you will find links to pages about some of the things I am involved in: Indian classical music: My tabla and mridangam teachers and musician friends, soundfiles of my teachers, friends and of myself, scores, press material, things going on at the moment, information about recordings, links to friends etc.
