Earlier this year, I played cello for Wouter Rentema and KW Toering’s beautiful soundtrack to the documentary Where The Light Shines about the first Olympic Ski Team from Afghanistan. Released this September.
Throughout 2018, a creative development grant has enabled me to focus on developing my solo music. I have been working in my studio in Berlin and now have a beautiful body of work which is ready for live performance and recording. At the end of the summer, I made two live videos with my friends Erin Kleh and Rebecca Naylor, soon to be released.
