This is the first solo track that I have ever done and is my variation of a West African percussion rhythm called Guinée Faré, played on an OMana F# Minor handpan (from Ukraine). I played it for the first time whilst on holiday in Hayle in Cornwall.
I am fortunate enough to work in a job that I absolutely love - delivering horticulture sessions to people with additional needs for a wonderful charity called the Dame Hannah Rogers Trust at Seale Hayne in Devon. Hannahs works to empower young people and adults with a wide range of physical and learning disabilities, and challenges societal beliefs and cultural acceptances surrounding disabled people with the aim of making disability incidental. I am passionate about the work I do there and the music that I make in my spare time, so I though what better way to show this than by combining the two. We have set up a fantastic little social enterprise business in the horticulture department growing 'Chuckleberries' and making delicious jam from them. We produced our first batches of the jam last year and it was so popular that we sold out of our years supply within a couple of months! As such we have expanded this year by planting more Chuckleberry bushes and intend on making more jam than last year.
This is where the music comes in. I would like to donate 100% of all proceeds made from sales of this track to purchasing new jam making equipment and supplies for this project (jam pans, convection stoves, organic sugar etc). I have made the track available for free download so please feel free to do so, but if you would like to donate any money to the project you can type in whatever amount you like (every penny counts!) Thanks to the generosity of Dan Baker who recorded, produced and mastered the track for me for free I have no overheads at all for this recording, so every single penny donated will go to the project. My personal aim would be to raise around £30-£40 pounds for the project, which would enable us to buy an new jam pan and jam thermometer.
