Aaron English just released the song: “My Dream (Lekna)”, a collaboration with Nairobi singer-songwriter Walter Koga.
Walter & Aaron wrote this song on a nyatiti – an ancient East African lute – at an orphanage in the slums of Kisumu, Kenya. Then Aaron took the song back to the U.S. to complete it. The song features Aaron playing a variety of ‘junk’ percussion: brake drum “chimes”, driftwood marimbas, & the rusted metal frame of a derelict grand piano.
Since Aaron’s previous song & video were released, he’s been on tour, playing concerts from the boot of Italy to northern Scotland, from the swamps of South Carolina to the islands of the Puget Sound.
In between making new songs & videos, Aaron will be playing more tours of the U.S. & Europe. If you want to receive an email when he’s playing in your area (or you want to check out all of his gigs, please check http://aaronenglish.com/calendar
