Episode 61, Shayna Dunkelman


Shayna Dunkelman is a delightful and charming young percussionist who is as at home playing modern versions of exotica as she is tackling the very best of 20th and 21st century new music.  She is a native of Tokyo, Japan and came to NYC by way of the Bay Area.  She's played with Zeena Parkins, John Zorn, Fred Frith and Willie Winant and is about to release the first record by her band Peptalk.  Shayna rules.
