My Journey to date

Born in Senegal West Africa of French parents, migrated to Australia in 1969. My love affair with music started at age 12, took up the drums at age 14. I fell in love with jazz, fusion, ECM artists and traditional world music’s. Eventually got back to contemporary styles blues, funk, R&B, rock, soul, reggae ETC.

In early 80's took up tabla, fell in love with Kyal, (North Indian classical), and later with the Carnatic music of the south, I also pursued traditions of Sacred Chant and world music, Japanese, African, Indian and Chinese. Played in varied bands of all genders since the late 70's.

I completed a BA of contemporary music in 2003, then traveled the world for 5 years, mainly in Fiji the States and India. Studied under South Indian drumming Masters, Subash Chandran and Ganesh Kumar in 2005, after which I became involved in Dhrupad and other forms of Sacred Chant as an accompanist for singers.

Back home in 2008 I began an exploration of electronic music, though since the 80's was a big fan of Jon Hassell and Brian Eno. I am now more moved to concentrate on writing, teaching, composing and being an online session drummer. Residing in Melbourne I have set up my pro home studio to do Online Sessions, using my TD30 Roland VDrums kit. Roland VDrums have been my primary instrument since being chosen as one of 6 finalists in the Australasian VDrums competition in 2011.

I am preparing for publishing the sum of my musical journey relative to drumming, in a series of books called "Know your Subdivisions". Coincident with my musical journey has been my spiritual adventure, therefore my orientation towards composition is one that aspires to engender in the listener a connection to source, depth, love and the mystery that lives and breathes us all.
