My roots are in the go-go dance halls of D.C., but from there I’ve found myself exploring Indian classical, electronic music, and extensions of straight-ahead and avant-garde jazz. It’s all here in the mixtapes I’ve been working out under the name GOGOPOLO. That’s a nickname that comes from what my mentor Arthur Taylor used to call me: He said I had a searching mind, so he used to refer to me as “Polo.”
In this music, I’m mixing that exploratory sense with my foundations in go-go. Check out one of these mixtapes in full for free below. And spread it around!
