Here's a quick overview about what I play and who with...
Matthew Marsolek is the band leader, composer, and arranger for two Montana world music groups, Drum Brothers and Mandir. He also runs Satsang Music, the independent label and management company that promotes and supports the two groups and their members.
Matthew has received awards of excellence from the University of Montana for his musical work with theater and dance. He has studied East Indian and West African music for the past 18 years with a variety of teachers, including Mukesh Desai from India and Abdoul Doumbia from Mali, West Africa. Matthew has experience and training in jazz, classical, and Hindustani vocal technique and is also an accomplished jazz and classical guitarist. As a recording artist, he has released projects with Drum Brothers and Mandir as well as two solo recordings, the most recent entitled, "The Bhakti Road". A dedicated and charismatic educator, Matthew has a passion for rhythm, musical relationships, and the theraputic and community building aspects of music. He teaches classes and clinics in voice, rhythm, and hand drumming throughout the United States and in Canada.
Matthew has been composing music for just about as long as he can remember. In addition to his work with Drum Brothers and Mandir, he's created music for theater, modern dance, spoken word, and film.
In 2004, Matthew and Marianne Spitzform, Ph.D., conducted a pilot study on hand drumming, consciousness and the brain through St Patrick's Hospital. Their research has been presented at the Toward a Science of Consciousness Conference in Tucson, Arizona, the Butte Cardiology Conference at St. James Healthcare in Butte , Montana , and the Bridging the Gap Conference at St. Pat's Hospital in Missoula, Montana .
Please let me know what it might take to include the Drum Brothers on our upcoming Koncerts For Kidz free admission family concert series at Dehler Park Baseball Stadium for a Schools Out Koncert on June 1st or late July and mid August dates if the first one doesn't work for your schedule. I usually have three different acts play for half an hour each and past artists have included Belly Dancers, the Shrine Jazz Band, Celtic Sessions, Joseph Fire Crow, Trevor Krieger & Jeff Troxel and Kostas to name a few. No performer fees are paid but product sales, travel support and adjoining concert dates have make things possible. It's a grass roots project, but growing in popularity and audience support as a benefit for the Billings Brain Injury Support Group. I'm thinking a full concert gig at the Billings Elks Club or the Babcock or Petro might work for an adult oriented performance. See www.koncertsforkidz.org or Koncert For Kidz on Facebook for more information and let me know your thoughts, ok? Thanks for this recent add.
