Taipei Times Article

Our Taiwan Tour wraps up this evening at Bobwundaye in Taipei with local reggae act Red Cliff. I got a nice half page article in the Taipei Times today :) (Cheers Dave Oh Yeah!) Last few days have been spent in recording studios - one in an old abandoned sugar factory (Island Studios) in the countryside of Dulan and the other in a bunker-style basement away from the sweltering heat of Taipei.

Big Island to Vancouver Island

image.jpg

At Uncle Robert's Awa Club in Kalapana, Big Island Jan 21st. Much Malama and Mahalo to the Kingdom of Hawaii. We are mixing Malama Ka Aina tonight and I feel transported to this magical place. Was just on Vancouver Island playing at the Waverley Hotel in Cumberland, and can't help but feel the Pacific Northwest is just a colder wetter cousin to my beloved Big Island.

Had an incredible time in Hawaii!! Played a bunch of shows around the Big Island and shot a music vido with Ena Media for Malama Ka Aina. Back in BC now, headed to Cumberland for a show at the Waverley Hotel tonight.

Yesterday I attended a fundraiser for the Klabona Keepers & Beyond Boarding's grassroots work protecting the Sacred Headwaters from Imperial Metals. The indigenous may be the most marginalized in society but they take a disproportionate responsibility for defending our last wild areas. They need our support - morally, financially, and if you can on the frontlines.

At Goat's Reggae Bar in Taiwan

image.jpg

I’ll be playing my first show in Taiwan ever tomorrow night at Goat’s Reggae Bar. Although I am primarily here to explore my family roots here, and attend a commemoration for my grandfather, my good buddy & fellow musician Scott Cook organized a show through old friends of his in the southern part of the Island. So far I’ve been loving exploring this beautiful little island and learning about my grandfather’s work in the self-determination movement. And glad to be playing a bit of music as well!!!
