Nicholas Toth - Olduvai Gorge, Northern Tanzania
Here are a couple of photos of me playing my VoyageAir guitar at Olduvai Gorge, northern Tanzania (“The Grand Canyon of Human Prehistory”.) This guitar travels well and plays great (even in the extreme tropical arid conditions on the Serengeti Plain), and is one of my very favorite guitars. The children are local Maasai from the nearby boma (village), who came over to hear me play.
You can see me playing the guitar on YouTube, (Also see below) “Olduvai Song” and “Zinjanthropus Blues”. You can see Bill Kaman (former president of Ovation) playing my guitar if you search “Safari Blues, Tanzania” (Bill is a good friend and great guitarist; he joined us on a 10-day safari to Tanzanian game parks last June).
You can listen to our songs about evolution at our web site http://www.stoneageinstitute.org under “Music Projects”. Our good friend Seymour Duncan (the pickup guy) is our lead guitarist.
You can watch the video of me playing “Green Onions” with Booker T Jones at our web site under “Music Connections”.
Yours very truly,
