Lucky for the Light

Feeling inspired by all of the recent events, hopeful for the state of the world, and thankful for the fortunate life I live.. I made this video for our amazing friend Dean as he goes through this difficult time, and for Venus as she offers her strong, supportive friendship to him. Footage taken the last few days as we transition through the seasons and hope for a healthy time ahead.. Venus Cruz on vocals. Enjoy everyone!..

Opening the show for (and playing with!) Baaba Maal October 13th, 2011 at the L2 Arts and Culture Center in Denver.

The Gyil (pronounced JEE-lee) is the national instrument of the Lobi and Dagara people of Ghana, Burkina Faso and Côte d'Ivoire, West Africa. It is made from fourteen wooden slats that are suspended, on a frame, over calabash gourds. Greg would like to thank his teachers Kakraba Lobi, Aaron Bebe Sukura, S.K. Kakraba and John Pennington. This group also recently backed up the wonderful singer Prudence Mabhena from Zimbabwe.
