Whoa!!

The last few months I've been invited to be a part of Breaking Sundays an "electro-jam" featuring a DJ, bassist (Juanlu of Calima/Ojos de Brujo,) vocalist (Ramon Mirabet,) and guest musicians, such as Cameron Moore, Jordi Mestres, Darryl Clark and others.

This Sunday for most of the night it was like the video below--Juanlu had another commitment...



Later, Juanlu came by and brought a friend.  Initially, I thought "Hey this guy is pretty good..."  and even by the time the next video was shot, I'm not sure I knew who was on stage with me...



...But it didn't stop me from dropping the classic Stalag riddim--basis of such dancehall hits as "Ring the Alarm" by Tenor Saw,  "When A Man's In Love" by Yami Bolo and the massive "Bam Bam" by Sister Nancy. 

Ladies and gentlemen, I was honored to be sharing the stage with MACACO!  Former member of Ojos de Brujo (like Juanlu) collaborator with Michael Franti of Spearhead and international star in his own right... 



He was really fun onstage, captivated the crowd and seemed to be enjoying himself.  Here's the funny part: about two weeks ago he was playing in Sitges and I wanted to go to the show, but I couldn't as it was sold out.  I knew some of his music and that he was "big," but I had NO idea how he looked...

I'm sure there was more video taken last night--as I find it, I will post it!

I mentioned Michael Franti earlier, so here's a video that he did with Macaco that was shot (partly) in Sitges!
