I use to watch him perform when I lived in San Francisco. I saw him first on the SFSU campus. From a distance I thought he was performing a Native American dance (he only had on a large loin cloth, he had a feather in his hair plus his hair is long and thick and looked like a headress plus the style of foot stomping, chanting, and rattling of shell-type instruments reminded me of dances at Navajo and Hopi Pow-Wows in Albuquerque).
He's very talented and great to talk to. He music is certainly operatic with the vocals (it's a created language he uses and sounds great). The often fast-paced tempo of his violin and stomping is quite contagious. The music can also be quite emotional and it really shows in his face and motions. Awesome performer!
