The Wali Sanga “Big Ears”


Take a listen and support the fundraising project for The Wali Sanga. Another stellar band I had the pleasure of recording live at Converse Rubber Tracks studio in 2016.

These guys play their asses off and it was super fun to record the bulk of this album live in the studio in one day. If you like Snarky Puppy, you’ll like The Wali Sanga
