Earth Rock

<p>&nbsp;&nbsp; I am <strong>Terre Roche</strong>,&nbsp; a musician and member of&nbsp; <strong>Afro-Jersey</strong>.&nbsp; Along with my band mates, <strong>Sidiki Conde</strong> and <strong>Marlon Cherry</strong>,&nbsp; I live in New York City where I teach guitar and play music every day.&nbsp; I am most well-known for my work in <strong>The Roches</strong>, a group I shared with my two sisters for many years.&nbsp;&nbsp; I especially enjoy being challenged musically, singing and playing with people from different cultures.&nbsp; But I also enjoy the discipline of learning specific repertoire. In recent years I've been learning to play Hawaiian slack key guitar.&nbsp; I've taken instruction from the great Keola Beamer whose music comes from a deep spiritual source. &nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp; I love to improvise!&nbsp;&nbsp; I'm the musician in Lanny Harrison's class "Characters in Motion" at the NY Shambhala Center.&nbsp; I've learned a great deal from Lanny,&nbsp; whose approach to "performing" is all about having the courage to remain present.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp; I'm most happy when I'm collaborating with others.&nbsp; Sidiki Conde is a wonderful teacher, who has inspired me to go beyond what I thought were my limitations.&nbsp; He drafted me into his band years ago where I had my first experience singing in Mandingo,&nbsp; which is his native language.&nbsp; Singing the sounds without knowing the words had a liberating effect on my imagination.&nbsp; In Afro-Jersey we write the songs together incorporating both English and Mandingo.&nbsp; For me this music is very fresh, new and relevant in today's world.&nbsp; It's folk music in its most genuine form,&nbsp; being the songs and stories of a global culture.&nbsp; As Sidiki so aptly put it "We are Afro-Jersey, from New York City!"</p>
