Album launch: Blessings and Bliss

His music takes its influence from the rich diversity of cultural life that characterizes his homeland, on the east coast of Africa. Blessings & Blues, his much anticipated 3rd release, explores the spirit of Africa and Neil’s personal reflection on life when he turned 50. The album features Neil on piano, Ildo Nanja on bass and Riley Giandhari on drums.
He says: “Social distance is a genuine opportunity to recenter, refocus, rejuvenate, repent, remember and to return to ourselves. This album of improvised music is of the journey within, the yearning to reconnect. Please give it a spin (an old analogue term) and let’s reunite in music.”
