Stephen Kent's Upcoming Performances
With beginnings in Uganda, and the seed sown there of a lifetime of interest in global cultures, it is no surprise that Stephen Kent has traveled the world, living at various times in Africa, England, Spain, Australia and, for the last 15 years, The San Francisco Bay Area. In Australia, as Music Director of Circus Oz, he first connected with Australian Aboriginal culture and the Didgeridoo. Stephen is an extraordinary didgeridoo player, host of "Music of the World" on KPFK, a music educator, master of ceremonies, and a Cricket fan. For tour dates click here!

Workshops & Didgeridoo Meditations in New York, NY
Didge Project is a didge awareness movement started by AJ Block and Tyler Sussman. Listening to the didgeridoo, having it played around the body, and feeling its powerful vibrations can facilitate deep meditation and enhance energy flow. The didgeridoo is a spiritual wind instrument that can be played for music, meditation and peace of mind. In this workshop we will discuss how abrasive vibrations negatively affect the human body and how natural vibrations can be used to rejuvenate and heal. The discussion will be followed by an extended group didgeridoo meditation (approximately 45 minutes) in which participants set their intentions for entering this deep state of relaxation.
