WeMove Studio is delighted to be welcoming the community to experience the songs and music of singer/songwriter/guitarist and trumpeter Peter Hunt, in collaboration with bass player Yosa Haile and drummer Hugh Jones.
The evening shall offer people the opportunity to drop into the vessel generated by Peter’s songs and the trio’s joint creativity, one of an inspiring dance. Voices of all present shall be given opportunity to weave into the fabric of song and rhythm. An intriguing part of the journey shall be Yosa’s generation of his songs deeply rooted in the traditional sound of his native country, Ethiopia.
Following the architecture of a tree, Peter grounds his music in earth-loving rhythms, and from those roots, allows his melodies to soar to the upper branches, offering listeners unique fruits, from familiar but unnameable lands.
He is the core songwriter and trumpet player for the band Kooii. He is also an active collaborator, playing with and writing for several groups panning the influences of African, Jazz, Reggae and various folk music’s helping cultivate a distinct soul-belonging sound that resonate through song’s that seek, or find, connection between people and place.
Multi-instrumentalist Yosa Haile is mostly known for his service as a bass player although he delights on all the significant instruments of a rhythm section, drums, guitar, piano. From Ethiopia, he carries in his being a love and understanding of music of many tribes of that country and combines that with an adept understanding of jazz and other forms of Western music. He walks with a love for music’s ability to draw people together for celebration and healing.
Hugh Jones, is a drummer and percussionist with a dolphin like sense of playfulness, wisdom and power in his creativity. He has generated the rhythm of several significant groups in the shire over the past decade drawing from a love and exploration of jazz, reggae and African music.
