New Video! Before You Were Born.

I’m back from an amazing tour round the UK with Modou Diouf our Senegalese Sabar teacher. We’ve done workshops all over the place and performed at three great venues with his UK drum band Jappo.

In between drumming and performing I’ve had a couple of gigs of my own material one at Bristol Balloon Fiesta in August and one the other day at a local community event.

I’ve got a new song brewing at last and feel ready to get going again!

I’ve also released a new video which I hope you enjoy which Paddy Uglow recorded and produced of my trippy song Before You Were Born!

Indie Music Site

In case any of you didn’t know, I have a lovely page at Chandramoon with most of my songs and videos to listen to whenever you fancy! There are loads of great indie musicians there and a host of online radio stations with just about every genre of music catered for. Great for artist and listeners alike!

Here’s my latest video recorded by Paddy Uglow recently!

Email address etc

So I’ve set up a new email address for anyone to contact me it’s info@chandramoon.com

so feel free to email me if you like.

I’m off for a few weeks in Gambia playing flute with my kora playing friend Moriba, sabar drumming and performing with Jappo at the Kartong Festival, hopefully writing some songs and catching up with friends.

See you end of February!

Website changes!

For various reasons I’ve decided to wind up my old website and stick to having this WordPress blog and a Facebook page.

There are too many sites to keep updated and I’m sure I can say all I need to say and post details of upcoming gigs or music releases here!

I’ll also keep publishing occasional blog posts about random subjects as well!

So, if you’ve been redirected here from chandramoon.com or chandramoon.co.uk – you’re very welcome!

Great New Gig Coming Up Dec 9th!

We’re putting on a gig here in Bristol on Weds, 9th December at 8pm at the Khan Bar at Falafel King, 6 Cotham Hill, Bristol BS6.

For openers we have Paddy Uglow playing some of his original songs followed by a new set by Chandra Moon Trio featuring Paddy on keys/violin and Jimi Can on percussion.

After the break, we’ll be treated to a fantastic and lively set from the brilliant Flamenco Loco.

All this for only £5! Delicious food available upstairs as well Рnot to be missed!

Long Summer!

We’ve had an amazing Summer as ever – a fantastic mix of seeing family and friends and doing lots of Sabar Drumming with our wonderful teacher Modou Diouf from Senegal. We did three performances with Jappo, Modou’s Sabar drumming group the most exciting one being at Drum Camp in Suffolk.

We’ve spent a lot of time away in our camper van all over the country in good weather and bad but mostly had a lovely time.

I’m going to be moving my main website from chandramoon.co.uk to here as it’s too much trying to keep multiple sites live and updated on top of Facebook and regular emails so it should get more interactive here.

Anyway – this is just a quick hello so you know I’m still around!

Two gigs coming up!

I’ve been very busy recently as I’ve got two gigs coming up. The first one is here in Bristol and it’s going to be great fun. I’ll be playing a few tunes with Paddy and Jimi then we have a fantastic flamenco set from Flamenco Loco.

Our upcoming gig at Khan!

Our upcoming gig at Khan!

Then at the end of May we’ve been invited to play at the Bath Fringe Festival. We’re going to do a similar format with a set from me then a flamenco set from Ganesha & Co at the Old Theatre Royal.

We’ve also been recording an old song which I’ve never worked on before.

Peter and I have been on a great drumming weekend and have a long weekend coming up of sabar playing over the bank holiday weekend.
