-Afri-Bass Project: the mission of the Afri-bass project is to transform and enrich the perception of double bass playing in developing countries, specifically in Africa. It consists of several facets such as the exposure and development of the double bass in Africa by means of a tour, starting in South Africa and continuing to Kenya, Uganda and Nigeria. The tour schedule will consist of recital performances, master classes and workshops at various universities, colleges and pre-college schools.
-Establish annual double bass festival/symposium.
-Recording a Solo Double Bass Album: to record an album with my own compositions and arrangements has been on my bucket list for the past two years. I hope to carry out this project in the near future after the acquisition of a fine instrument.
