    Ep #129 with Steve Shehan, composer and multi-instrumentalist - Part 2

    Steve Shehan is an eclectic composer in World Fusion music and has traveled to many places on the planet to learn about global music on a deep level. He became a pilot to be able to travel to these places and brought medical supplies and bought instruments to bring home. He has been in high demand as a percussionist with people like Paul Simon, Paco de Lucia and John McLaughlin and many more. He plays percussion and hang drum, piano and more. The story of his many journeys is even more amazing than his music. In this episode he talks about becoming a pilot and his magical trip to Bali.

    Ep #128 with Steve Shehan, composer, percussionist and multi-instrumentalist - Part 1

    Ep #128 with Steve Shehan, composer, percussionist and multi-instrumentalist. Steve Shehan is legendary for his pursuit of World Music throughout his life. He used his pilot’s license to travel to far flung places and meet musicians and bring back instruments. He has worked with Paul Simon, Paco de Lucia, John McLaughlin and many more. He has made many recordings which feature his innovative World Fusion creations starting in 1987 with his album “Arrows" which is featured on this episode. One of my favorite living musicians, I am delighted to have him on The World Fusion Show. This is part 1 of a 3 part episode with him.

    Ep #124 with Derek Gripper, guitarist and composer.

    Derek Gripper, who is from Capetown, South Africa, discovered the music of Toumani Diabate, a kora player from Mali and it changed his life. He decided to transcribe the music by this African Griot for the classical guitar. Toumani is an true innovator on the kora and developed a style where he plays 3 parts at once - bass lines, accompaniment and melody simultaneously. He adapted this multi-layered fingerstyle of Tomani’s kora playing and has been touring and teaching classes online to students from all over the world.

Director

I am so impressed by the World Fusion Show and the love and care that producer Derrick Jordan puts into his projects. I am fascinated to hear the way that the musicians he interviews evolved to harness their passions. The idea of using world fusion as the glue that connects each of the shows with each other to form a series makes a lot of sense. The premise of the series give us a more comprehensive understanding of how world fusion influences the cutting edge of numerous musical styles. Bravo!
