The Lone Stranger

The Lone Stranger basic final

Tonto is busy with a transformation vision quest, Silver has been put out to pasture and this leaves ‘The Lone Stranger’ (aka Buzz Bury) lost in a world where working alone is a hard job but somebody has to do it. The former Ranger and Global Outlaw regular puts the world in a spin with digging deep in to the vaults of his CD collection to play out the festival by bringing music from every corner of the world to this small corner of the world. Until the next time my kemo sabe’s.

“…We now know that every particle in the physical universe takes its characteristics from the pitch and pattern and overtones  of its particular frequencies, its singing. And the same thing is true of all radiation, all forces great and small, all information. Before we make music, the music makes us…” (from ‘The World Is Sound: Nada Brahma’ by Joachim-Ernst Berendt)

Hugh Peters


Hugh Peters, from (Z)Amani, is a guitarist, bass player and composer of music who has worked in education, community arts and as a gigging musician in the North West of England for over 30 years. Educated in Manchester, he worked as a teacher of mathematics in Zimbabwe 1985-87 where his European style guitar playing became mixed in with the music schoolchildren sang, danced and played traditional drums to. Later he met and was influenced by Thomas Mapfumo, hearing his reworkings of traditional Zimbabwean and 70s ‘chimurenga’ songs, as well as other Harare based musicians making hybrid music mixing together American jazz, South African and Congolese styles into danceable African pop music.

He continues to work as a musician and educator in Manchester, which has recently seen a blossoming of global music styles growing from the strong local live music scene mixing with creative currents from around the world.

Bugalu Foundation

Bugalu Foundation large 2
The Bugalu Foundation plays a style of music influenced by Latin legends such as Ray Barretto, Mongo Santamaria, Tito Puente and Eddie Palmieri. Their sound is particularly evocative of the 70’s era of ‘Our Latin Thing’, when the musical traditions of New York’s east and west Harlem come together in an irresistible fusion of Jazz, Funk and Soul mixed with the Hispanic beats of ’El Barrio’.

This nine/ten piece powerhouse, which features the remarkable Vocal talent of Martin Connor, has more than a hint of Palmieri’s ‘La Perfecta’, a good dose of the guitar fuelled Afro-Latin style of Joe Battaan and has a simple aim; To move body and soul!
