Abu Dijgo
April 2016 saw the sudden and unexpected death of our dear friend Abu Dijgo. A very special musician rooted in the Fula music tradition. We toured China twice and performed Holland with Ernst Reijseger. Rest in peace 'grand'.

Flutes n' Squeaks
This is a duo I enjoy a lot. Squeekologist Alan 'Gunga' Purves and me in improv. We are kind of 'sound architects' and 'crazy situations creators'. It is fun to watch and listen. There is a teaser out now on video!
With the David Patrick Jazz Tentet I had the experience of performing Claude Debussy's Ballet 'Jeux' several times in Scottland. Magic arrangement, fantastic musicians. "A splendid, if anything more natural, swinging jazz ballet." (Herald Scottland) Highly recommended!
Lotz Of Music meets Claudio Puntin
Going strong in creativity, ideas and bizarre sounds here a collaboration with Swiss clarinet monster Puntin. Our project with Don Byron was review in superlatives, here heading for the next level. Excited and happy!

Traveling you meet so many great musicians and people: in Lissabon Nelson CascaisJon Luiz, Miguel Mira  and his great Bar Tejo wipped me off my feet. In France I had the pleasure to perform with Laurent Rochelle. Fantastic musician, clarinet player and composer. And encountered so many many more great musicians/composers/modernists in Spain, Taiwan, France, Portugal, Scotland, etc. There is a nice video published where I was invited for a solo somewhere up in the French Pyrenees!

Kuyateh/Lotz/   Bhattacharrya Trio

The combination of Indian tabla with African Cora goes smooth as butter. If you add Bansuri flutes and African/Indian vocalizations - we and you fly. Great new band. No website, no sounds, no video. Just book ;-)
Together with Brazilian guitar visionist Daniel Marques I will perform Indian (Bihar) in November. In december Dehli will see a.o. performances with a brand-new ensemble. This will feature next to two Indian musicians, tabla player Heiko Dijker and keyboard player/producer Stefan Schmid. A crossover in Beats n’ Sounds, Jazz and Indian music.
