Top Experience

I have been performing with an Ethiopian Bands which came to Houston for an especial engagement, I have to recognize this unique experience in relation to this music and this musicians. The Music was a unique blending of the multi-color skillfull vocalization which is known in the Indian Music and the brain braking syncopated musical phrases on, a 6/8 time signature. The dynamics between the blending Bass-Guitar-Keyboard and the singer was something never witnessed by me in any, Salsa, Rock, or Jazz Band, they have a short syncopated musical phrase in a constant response to the lyrics from the singer and interposing others time signature within the 6/8 main pattern. The people did stay 'till 4.00 am., dancing to the music, both the dancers and the musicians absolutelly enjoyed the interaction which I have with this Ethiopian Band, and to me it was a top experience. They told me that after the show they have to fly to East Africa for another engagement but later, I have more opportunities to play with other singers, like; New Debebe, Ealsa Tesfaye, Kuri Bachew, Elias Tebadal, Shambel Blaynih, Tsehay Kassa, Setegu Atanaw, Teshager Yilma, Aster Aweke. Folks my respect to this Ethiopian singers and musicians, one of my greatest experiences. Gerry Zaragemca, is a World's Expert in Afro Cuban Percussion and Caribbean Music
