Have you created on one or more albums ?
I did a lot of busking in the 90s on the streets of Amsterdam. At the same period of time, I worked at the Didge Shop “Aboriginal Art & Instruments” starting from 1994. A didgeridoo scene developed around this store, and that’s where I connected with many players. Also most were famous like Alan Dargin (who became a friend and was my first inspirer), Mark Atkins, Si Mullumby (also a very dear friend who had a huge effect on my rhythms), Ganga Giri and Charlie McMahon to name a few.
Then 3ple-D was my first “serious” band, founded by my Didge brother Michiel Teijgeler (aka Mt-Yidaki) and myself. Percussionist Terence Samson joined us later. Two Didgeridoo players and a percussionist (Didge Didge Drums, that’s why we called ourselves 3ple-D, maybe a nice detail to know).
So we made two albums: “High from the Lowlands” and “Zumo” which came out in 2003, and at that time well received because he was so Didgeridooeee ;-). I still love the songs on it and I am so happy to have created it together. With these two brothers, we toured a lot around the world, playing in all kinds of festivals.
In 2018, we, Aura Rascón Becerra and I, released our first CD as a duo SANSZUS. Our album is called “Area, tales of a breathing planet”. It is a beautiful album with the magical dreamy sounds of the Bansuri (Indian bamboo flute) and the earthy vibrations of the Didgeridoo. We created, I believe, seven very distinct songs with only these two instruments. A funny detail is that we had already recorded the songs in 2014, but with the mixing, mastering and writing of the booklet, it took us four years to release it. Ooooops, it was a long delivery, hahahaha !
Another group that I toured a lot with was called Loonaloop who is based in Australia. The first time we met was already in the 90s. On one of their albums, “Skipping Stones”, you will hear me on most of the songs !!! If you like positive dance music, go for it :-).
With the contemporary classic Hertz Ensemble, of which I am a part, we were supposed to record an album right now, but because of the Coronavirus, it is postponed. For all the other albums that I was part of, I was basically a paid session musician.
