“Trust and devotion. Both a path and a goal.”

Trust and devotion.
These 3 words appeared in front of my inner eye a couple of years ago.
And they have stuck, till today.
To trust my life and my vibrancy and to fully devote to it. That’s what I want.
Yes, I wanna be alive, like a little child.
And I wanna inspire others with this vibrancy.
That’s why I make music.
It makes me feel alive.
That’s my job
I love it.

External activities (e.g. live concerts at public venues) have been cancelled until further notice.

This allows me to pause and reflect. Time I probably would not have given myself otherwise. I’m revising this website among others. Old may go, new is welcomed.

If you would like to financially support me this is highly appreciated no matter how little or much your contribution may be. You can do that either via PayPal/Credit Card or Patreon.

Dates to pamper your ears:

As of now the first Xumbalu n’Goni album „Sounds of Gouni – The Journey, Pt. 1“ is available.
The n’Goni is a harp with origins in West Africa. Its fine sounds can take you both far away and closely to yourself.
Each of the seven instrumental compositions is a 10-minute repeating melody and an invitation to immerse yourself in the sound while the brain may take a break. 
Even if you play the music in the background you will notice relaxation spreading.
If you would like to have a CD (this silver disc not known to everyone anymore…) please send an email to info@xumbalu.de. For digital download please have a look at BandcampiTunes or Google Play. Enjoy the sounds and even more importantly: relax…
