Contemporary Didgeridoo

As a globally acclaimed player of the ancient Australian Aboriginal didgeridoo Stephen Kent has pioneered its use in contemporary music across the globe for more than 30 years collaborating with leading musicians such as Brazil's Airto Moreira, India's Zakir Hussain, Doors drummer John Densmore and Habib Koite from Mali. His own band projects include Baraka Moon, Trance Mission and the legendary Lights in a Fat City.
As a solo performer he is a virtual one-man-band, producing an extraordinary layering of sounds and grooves and creating an almost orchestral ambience with this primal instrument, accompanying himself on all kinds of shakers and hand percussion on musical journeys that travel deep into the heart of the earth.
«If you're skeptical about being swept away by someone blowing through a hollowed out tree branch you're in for a big surprise»

He spent 7 years as a comic performer in New Circus, experiences that evolved his close connection with audiences worldwide. He tours and performs frequently both as a solo artist and with Baraka Moon, Trance Mission and Del Sol.
