I am a multi-instrumentalist (guitar, bass, percussion/drumset) interested in working with a (preferebly female) vocalist that can sing African and/or Latin music. I have been playing/studying different styles of world music for the past ten years or so, I am 35 and a white American guy so I dont come form a specific African/Latin tradition but proficient in playing many non-western styles. I am very inspired by Oumou Sangare of West Africa and Joyce form Brazil specifically as reference points. I am hoping to not only expand my musical horizons but start up or just back up a singer for a local world music project that features a female vocalist. I write original music that is African and Latin inspired in several local bands in Portland. I am not realy looking for other musicians but specifically someone that can sing in an African language and/or Spanish/Portugese to be able to sing non-English lyrics etc. Please do not respond just because you "like" this kind of music because I seriously want to find a competent vocalist that I just described! Just e-mail me directly form this e-mail (wambapdx@gmail.com) I look foward to hearing form you. Greetings! adam
