We had our 1st proper tour of mainland Europe from May 15-28 supporting the release of our debut album “Chaal Baby” on Jaro Medien. We had performances in Czech Republic, Poland, Austria, Germany and led off the tour at Jazz sous les Pommiers in Coutances, France. My dhol never made the flight with me and was sitting back in JFK. So my “dhol du jour” consisted of a timbale and floor tom laying on their sides and I carved own sticks from the bamboo tree outside the venue right before show. Didn’t hold us back…2 encores!
