After a successful crowdfunding campaign I spent two weeks in the Gambia in November 2014, with sound technician Martin Messent, playing and recording with Toumaranke Percussion. Some of the photos from the sessions can be seen on the Toumaranke Percussion facebook page https://www.facebook.com/toumaranke?ref=bookmarks. It was an extraordinary time. We had a laptop, an interface, 2 mikes and 2 pairs of headphones and thanks to the talents of both the band & Martin we now have enough material for a CD. It’s mixed and ready to be mastered. More fundraising needs to happen now to get the CD physically done.
