Torakina magic

This category contains magical music that seems to work with almost any human interest style story or documentary.

It’s the result of regular jam sessions with musicians: Ian Brunskill, Matt Hill, Matt Curnock, Alex Salvador, Rebecca McHutchinson, myself and occasionally Dave Gaylard and Dean Miller. Many others would drop in to our sessions to play and add their life and musical experiences to the mix. In 2009 Matt Hill organised some of the regular players to record and produce a studio album, also called Torakina.
