Snarky Puppy & Lalah Hathaway won the Grammy!

Congratulations to Snarky Puppy & Lalah Hathaway for winning the Grammy best R&B performance award!!!
It was a true honor to be part of the crew capturing the performance in Jefferson Center and big pleasure to work/tour with these amazing musicians all these years :)

Michael League changed my life back in 2011 when he asked me to bring my camera to tour with the band after I finished playing guitar with Lauryn Hill. Since then, not only making videos for Snarky members but also he introduced me to a lot of opportunities for making videos for many other musicians. He is the most hard working guy I have ever seen and most inspiring person that everyone enjoys working with him no matter how long the hours are and how complex the situation is.
Also congrats to all the Snaky family Mike Maher Bob Lanzetti Mark Lettieri Chris McQueen Justin Stanton Bill Laurance Nate Werth Robert Sput Searight Cory Henry Chris Bullock Jay Jennings you all deserve this award :-)
Shout out to Andy LaViolette Brad Holt Nikki Birch the video crew and Avi Yosef Gunther Eric Hartman Jake Dempsey Rob Bessolo the audio crew.
Thank you u all!

On March 8th, 2013, Snarky Puppy and a host of special guests convened at the Jefferson Center in Roanoke VA. The project was to record a series of live performances in audio and video that would bring attention and benefit to the ongoing work of the center. The Jefferson Center is a non-profit arts organization that is revitalizing a key neighborhood in Roanoke with the restoration of Jefferson High School and the renovation of the Shaftman Performance Hall. The hall brings world class music to the local community through the Music Lab, providing education and recording space for local children.

The Music Lab at Jefferson Center is working daily to pull from every social and economic class of the Roanoke community and create the next wave of real, human musicians. They host low cost or free after-school programs for any interested young people filled with visits by guest artists, private instrumental instruction, and recording training. Wafting out of the little studios and rehearsal rooms on the third floor of Jefferson Center, you can hear Afro-beat in Swahili, hip-hop in Liberian Kreyol, the blues coming from the guitar of a 13 year-old prodigy, and the undeniable sound of young musicians growing. It's a thing that needs to be supported at all costs across this country, and by purchasing this record, you've done it.

A portion of every sale will go to the Music Lab at Jefferson Center.

Fretless Guitar and Piano Chinese Folk Song Lan Hua Hua 蘭花花

Couple weeks ago after I shot some videos in Riro Muzik Studio where their beautiful Steinway piano just arrived. I sat down at the piano and totally fell in love with it so I decided to record a traditional Chinese folk song with Fretless guitar and Piano.
