I graduated from Berklee College of Music in September 2011 with a degree in Jazz Composition and Electric Bass Performance. Now, I am beginning my career as a world music bass player and composer! I play bass for the Boston-based Afro-pop band Kina Zoré (www.kinazore.com) and for a new Latin group called California Band. My original music can be heard on www.GalenWillett.com.
I love African, Latin, Middle Eastern, Indian, and other global ethnic music. Some of my favorite artists are Peter Apfelbaum, Karim Ziad, Salif Keita, Youssou N'Dour, Mokhtar Samba, Thomas Mapfumo, Pat Metheny, Nguyen Le, and Bill Frisell.
I'm a musician and world music enthusiast. I want to hear about all world music shows in Boston, especially North African, West African, and other African music.
