I joined just to share my friends Serge and "Django" on the streets in Belgium. The band Luna Nueva is such fun, they make silly videos where the
music just seems to come as easy as breath, so for that i thank creator for the music and the smiles I got watching all the people from everywhere
make music together in this thread...would that peace be as easy. They goof off a lot, but some of my favorite songs...like Boris (aka Bobo) singing
with his mother Tima some old Gitano music...or video that starts with them being stupid about "chips" and then suddenly my Oli starts to play and
Bobo sings off camera...it's amazing. Sometimes I wish they'd dispense with the horseplay and just sing They're also close friends with my dear
friend Philippe Cataldo, the french pop star and I think they made a few goofy vids with him...
But first, Serge and Django

Really cool, reminds me of the Bhundu Boys, who were an 80s-90s band out of Zimbabwe that I had the extreme pleasure of opening for at the Music
Machine off Pico in LA, circa 87...absolutely hypnotic. The rhythms were absolutely sick, as were some of the chords. The guitar style was to imitate
the mbiri, or African thumb piano, that was common in their country, but was adapted to the guitar. This is a pretty good representation of the band,
I believe the bass player, David Mankaba, later died of AIDS, the original lead singer, Biggie Tembo, committed suicide.
She is extremely talented and if history is any predictor someone will discover her talent and replicate it and steal the fame from her by claiming it
as their own. She has an open face and an amazing "way." This was a great find. She should be brought to the attention of someone who will give her
her due place in the world of the guitar.
