So here is an interesting project: suggest a seven-syllable phrase in any language(s) you speak (swahili, mandarin, german, french...all welcome) that says something like: "this is the place I love" or "this is where I connect with the world" or "I can't live with out this place" or anything of this kind. Check out the video below for more info and write your ideas as a "comment" under this blog post. If everyone helps we might be able to play it at our next show at SOB's on September 28th. Let's see what you guys can do!

My good friend and fellow musician Sergio Saavedra (www.myspace.com/sergiosaavedramusic / www.sergiomusic.blogspot.com) shared this video with me today. It's some great footage of Lucho Bermudez, one of Colombia's most important bandleaders of his time. I'm sure you can hear the influence that this music has had in our band.
