A gift from Waway Saway

11 Jun

Waway Saway, musician from the Southern Philippines, spent a week in and around San Francisco in which we spent quite some time jamming and talking about the development of Filipino music.

Pictured here is a bamboo kubingthat he made himself pictured resting on one of my analog synthesizers onstage before a performance.


Waway brought his organic tribal folk sound along with his handmade katyapi and tambuleleleng string instruments and graciously participated in one of my typical musical experiments combining indigenous Filipino music with electronic instruments and live looping.

    Any chance to hear these jam sessions? Are you recording them? As a fellow producer of ethnic electronica, I’d love to hear them!
