Campfire Club: Gasper Nali
The Nest Collective & English Folk Expo invite you to enjoy a beautiful fireside concert with Gasper Nali.
Rediscover one of life’s simplest joys – the sharing of live music in the glow of a campfire.
Every summer, we gather in beautiful green spaces within cities to hear extraordinary music by artists from all over the world.
In the simple way that people have done for thousands of years, we come together around the fire to enjoy music, food, drink and the company of others.
For this Campfire Club we are delighted to present Gasper Nali.
Gasper Nali plays a Babatoni – a 3 meter, one-stringed, home-made bass guitar – with an empty bottle and a stick. And makes the most beautiful and catchy original afro-beats possible.
Gasper is a one-man-band, with the Babatoni bass guitar, cow skin kick drum and very catchy tunes. He is absolutely unlike anything else. It’s super Malawian roots, it’s very up beat and incredibly danceable! – or – as a Bandcamp fan nicely put it: “Gasper is a one man party! It’s completely impossible to stop moving – and just as impossible to stop smiling!”
“His music is simple but joyous, and totally infectious” * * * * – Songlines
