Music is where I love to be. I create all kinds of music, from songs with a traditional Middle-Eastern Gypsy sound to mad pop, rock and blues. I am fond of talking about the otherworld in my songs. Some songs support the underdog and protest about the state of the world. I am currently working on two albums: "Wild and Free", focusing on Rom Gypsy themes, and "Autistic Spirit", which gives a voice to autism. Please explore my music through the links given above. I am happy to give performances and also talks on the benefits of music in culture.
COMING HOME TO THE TREES: Travelling with the Gypsy Spirit of the Past.
Do the trees retain earlier memories of nomadic Gypsy people and their spirits? In Coming Home to the Trees we are introduced to Mocheriben, the spirit of values and principles, Bokt, the spirit of luck and destiny, and Parava, the spirit of change and transformation, along with many others. How much do the spirits play a part, especially when it comes to those who inhabit our sitting rooms, our bathrooms and our kitchens? Why should luck and destiny be so important to us now?

SOLSTICE from Patrick Jasper Lee's album PREHISTORIC DREAM
The story of Kam, the Spirit of the Sun, is a big one, especially at Winter Solstice time. Called the Kamesko Bersh (the sun’s birthday), in Romani Gypsy language, Kam enters a magical period lasting five days, beginning on Dec 21, when he dies and comes back to life again. This relates to an early myth. The Winter Solstice is an intensely magical time in the calendar, a dreamy, empowering, otherworldly period of the year when we, like Kam, must let things go, let them die, so that we can begin a brand new cycle when Kam returns to Earth.
