Before the launch of Bash in1992 going to a UK percussion concert was a sad act of masochism but using the music of West Africa as the core of their repertoire and mixing it with classical, contemporary, jazz, and theatrical music Bash quickly put paid to that! A world class festival act… from the 1997 concert for the handover of Hong Kong, to the Commonwealth Heads of State Conference, the Sydney Festival, four tours of Italy, Rome Labour Day concert for 500,000, a Tour of Greece with Stewart Copeland, Melbourne Festival, Bath International Festival, and the QEH.
