Richie Barshay at the Mamoní Valley Preserve

By Kael Shipman 25 February, 2014

At the end of the Panama Jazz Festival, we had the pleasure of hosting world-class percussionist Richie Barshay and 5-time Grammy Award-winning sound engineer and producer Rob Griffin at the Mamoní Valley Preserve. During their visit, Richie took a moment to experiment with the sounds of nature, while Rob filmed on his iPhone.

This video is funky, yet it succeeds in conveying Richie's spontaneous joy in composing in nature, it's a harbinger of the greatness to come out of our inventive partnership with Mother Nature, Artistic Director. And her lead partner is Rob Griffin—the co-founder of Junglewood. While he started out his impressive career in music as a guitarist, we love and welcome him as the Pied Piper of Junglewood.
