Yesterday I have stumbled across an interesting African Special on a French German broadcasting station which features a DIY modular synth from Uganda called Afrorack built by Brian Bamanya. See link below at 6:45 (the programme features some more stuff of interest):

Brian Bamyana has his own youtube channel. This one of the vids he has uploaded:


Since the search function is broken I could not check whether Bamyana has been covered here before.

loved this!

I love this. I hope there is more of it. Different cultures can teach us so much when using the same or similar tools.

As a professional violinist, I was shocked when I learned that Karnatic musicians in India used the violin in their music for many hundreds of years. Their way of holding the instrument, tuning it, and playing it is very different from the Western school, yet anyone who has ever heard a really top-notch Karnatic violinist has to be blown away by the virtuosity, musicianship and inventiveness.

Boiler room just posted a live set from this guy and it is super great. Does he have any releases yet?!

Ya! Brian's music is rad! He has a new set posted courtesy of the Boiler Room and Nyege Nyege Festival over on YouTube.



Also, I managed to interview him recently over on my podcast if anybody is interested in learning more about the Afrorack, his creative inspirations, etc. He gave a shout out to Chris Beckstrom! cool Super cool guy doing a lot of cool things. http://opposablepodcast.com/64

Got to see him at Nyege Nyege fest in Jinja Uganda last month. Very cool. Pretty sure his set was recorded by Boiler Room if you’re into seeing a replay. I took great vids but my phone got stolen later on so it’s all lost...
Ears
Found it - here’s his set from September [video] http://www.facebook.com/boilerroom.tv/videos/2072971386140415 [/video]
