Before moving to Rochester in 2007, I played in two Ithaca bands: The Cornell University Klezmer Ensemble and Jalamyst.
Besides Moja, you can join me in Drum Circle Of Rochester
I'm really glad to be back playing again after a huge gap of several decades when I worked and helped bring up a family. MOJA is the ideal platform to experiment with other musical styles and see where we can meet up.

Moja: Swahilli word meaning "ONE"
Our band Moja is an effort to incorporate the musical influences of different cultures into a single unifying sound. The band attempts to weave different influences into our original roots music. Moja is the result of bringing together musicians interested in exploring the musical elements of Celtic, Middle eastern, Indian, African, and Americana music and integrating some of those elements into our original songs and covers.
This is a vision that will hopefully unfold into reality as life permits.
We are actively looking for additional talent.
Sax / Horn, Fiddle, Accordian, harmony vocalists
Why not come along for a tryout. A desire to play and develop home-grown material and explore many styles of music plus a commitment to rehearse and play gigs in the Rochester area are must-haves.
