Default Re: Michael Barker

I have recently started having lessons with Michael, he's the man. Nice guy and excellent drummer. He does everything - sings, plays piano, plays all sorts of cool orchestral percussion. Here is a link to his current project, a two piece thing - http://www.facebook.com/pages/Swamp-...66015766794447 (a couple of songs up on the music tab)

Some recent live videos:

In the second one he is playing an instrument called a Manza... has about 12 wooden keys with coconuts and short lengths of bamboo on the bottom as resonators. Sounds awesome in the flesh!
