A wonderful evening concert by Circle of Rhythm, the first live music we have seen for a while. They (Greg Sheehan, Bobby Singh and Ben Walsh) were so excited to be playing. It was a joyous occasion with amazingly complicated rhythms, that still emerged as music. Ben has built his own instrument, the Kotoor, a 16 string percusive instrument.
