Dave -
London/Guyanan story teller, Tuup

What a lovely man he is! I met him in 2007 at Whitby MusicPort Festival when we were travelling around Britain with the great kora player/singer Jali Sherrifo Conteh. He saw Sherrifo play in the opening concert and asked him to play a sort of background to his storytelling spots. The blended together instantly. After that they were together all the weekend in workshops, informal performances and backstage as well as in concerts with Tuup playing his djembe behind the kora. There was also a great multi-cultural session with these two and members of the Warsaw Village Band.
Guyana and The Gambia melding together for the benefit and enjoyment of English audiences. Of course, this was 2007 and before we had a racist government.
