AWIL 171 - Pete Lockett

 Around the world in 1000 beats with Pete Lockett on this A World in London! Click:

After interviewing percussion guru Pete Lockett on AWIL in October, too much was left unsaid and we had to have another innings with him! This time round we caught up after his June tours in Greece, China, and Canada, just before he jets off to Japan and seals off new albums with Cuban percussionist Luis Conte and Airto’s daughter Diana Purim, adding to his already huge who’s who list that includes Peter Gabriel, The Verve, Robert Plant, Dido, and Joji Hirota! Pete’s voracious zest for life, infused with world rhythms, is infectious and irrepressible, and it was a privilege to see some of his brilliant drumscapes created live in our studio. Hear a supreme master at work on this AWIL!! WWW.PETELOCKETT.COM Percussion you'll never forget!  DRUMS FOR EVERYONE (iDevices)  YOUTUBE
