World traveler, subway sax man Jeremy Danneman never stops. From the start, his vision was to bring Sophie Nzayisenga from Rwanda to the US to complete a new recording, and the vision is now a reality. HONEY WINE centers around the INANGA, the national instrument of Rwanda, and Sophie is the only female Inanga player in the world. Jeremy met Sophie while offering street performances during the commemoration of 15th anniversary of Rwandan genocide, and together they represent two cultures united though music to bring some balance to the human experience. Honey Wine features jazz bassist William Parker and percussionist Tim Keiper, and takes you on a trip from the subways of Brooklyn to the rivers of Africa. Our respect for Jeremy's vision and persistence could not be stronger, so please join us in supporting his work. Honey Wine is available for preorder now.
World traveler and seeker of social justice Jeremy Danneman is back, this time with the third album in his trilogy - LOST SIGNALS. Jeremy digs deep with themes of atonement, forgiveness, war, peace, and liberation on this one. Originally intended to include Rwandan Inanga player Sophie Nzayisenga, the project took a different turn when the US State Department denied Sophie's visa. Undeterred, Dannemann completed the project and eventually recorded new material with Sophie. Dig in to Lost Signals right here, and check out Jeremy's Parade Of One Foundation here.
