Wed., August 24 7:30 PM
As a multi-talented musician, Harold E. Smith makes music out of anything he picks up. He plays drums, wind and percussion instruments from many continents, gongs, whistles, conch shells and the traditional Australian Didgeridoo. In the jazz domain, Harold is noted for his highly energized, emotional, and innovative style of drumming, both as a leader and sideman. In all domains, Harold Smith is a person deeply in touch with the spirit of nature and the nature of our spirit. The first time he picked up the didgeridoo, he could play it.
When he plays, he is always in conversation with the Great Spirit. He makes music that warms folk’s hearts, and brings smiles to their faces. The music comes from his heart, and his magical soul to ours. Harold has not just sought out the indigenous instruments from around the world, he has spent time with people who make and play them in concert settings and socially. From the Australian Aborigines, Wugularr Community, the very ones that made some of his Didgeridoos, sharing talks and music in his home, to the Tibetan Monks from various monasteries, Sera Je, Ganden Jangtse, and the more recent Drepung Gomang Monastery.
