Long time San Francisco activist Nora Roman has assembled a new band: The Border Busters. Her original, frontera fracturing political music fuses Latino, Arabic and U.S. lyrics and rhythms into something new.
Nora recently released a 12 song CD, “I Belong to No Man’s State”. I add bass, oud, qarqaba, Moroccan clapping and vocals on various tracks, and I helped arrange a couple of the more Arabic-influenced tracks. Oh, and I played clarinet at the CD release party
