DAVID CHEVAN: the face of the bass

Colin McEnroe Show podcast


Last August Warren Byrd, my long-time music partner and Afro-Semitic Experience co-founder and I participated in the recording of a special live Colin McEnroe show about musicians making spirituality into art. That two-hour event was pared down to a little less than an hour and aired on Colin’s WNPR show.


The show was taped at the Copper Beech Institute Holy Family Passionist Retreat Center. Warren and I were joined by three other Connecticut musicians whose art is informed by their spiritual lives, Tina Colon, Arunan Arulampalam, and Noah Baerman.


Interested? The show is now a podcast that you can listen to. Here’s the link:
