new page and project in progress 

As the year 2017 closes I'm excited to have started a new collaboration with Hawaiian Percussionist Lopaka Colon' jr.   Lopaka is the son of " Augie Lopaka SR, known around the world as the father of exotica percussion and the originator of the " Bird Calls" that were recorded on all Martin Denny Recordings.   

 

Mr. Mackay and Lopaka are embarking on a new exciting duo that breathes new life into the world of exotica music.  There us a wide array of Electronic and Acoustic Percussion sounds in a small duo setting. Both Performers use individual Looping stations to stretch the duo sound into a full orchestra of exotica instruments and sound scapes ... "INTOXIKA"
