The relationship to East Africa/Kenya started when I first played a Live DJ set in the so called Club Sikiliza at Village Market Nairobi / Kenya in 2003. I was jaming with some well known local musicians like Idd Aziz on Percussions & the voice of Mercy Myra supported by Funky George on Sax (Austria) and Stoney the Flute (Austria).

The musical connection never stoped and after releasing two Single EP`s & Videos with the singer Idd Aziz (Mama Jo 2016 and Djemaa 2014) i am also blessed to have met the Community of Santuri Safari to work on a Remixprojekt for Makadem – Mganga Mkuu in 2015.

This are some hot news about my musical collaborations between Eastafrica and Austria !!
