of Nibumbu, Lead Music Facilitator
In 2001, Joe nearly perished in a car accident. The long recovery process nurtured a healer’s spirit within him, and as his wounds healed, his soul yearned for ways of channeling this ever-growing impulse. Eleven years later, in 2012, Joe was still searching for his life’s calling when some friends invited him to come along with them to a music festival.
One of the musical performances had such a potent effect on him that by the end of the night, the direction of his entire life would be changed forever: he would become a musician…or die trying. In 2013, his new calling would bring him all the way from Florida to the Rocky Mountains, where he found fertile ground for nurturing his musical inclinations. Shortly thereafter he connected with groups of like-minded individuals and out of that substrate of community and nature, he co-founded Nibumbu, and thus an ideal vehicle for harnessing his creative and healing impulses.
Joe’s ever growing list of Instruments: Acoustic drum kit, 3+ types of electronic drum systems, Didgeridoo, Loop pedals, Hang drums/Handpans, Jaw Harps/Danmoi, hand drums and various types of percussion instruments.
