With a sonic palette and a fluency in multiple rhythmic modalities that is the representation of a global citizen personified, London-based percussionist and educator Pete Locket has been a cutting edge force in the world of music. With collaborations and sessions with a list of artists that range from the likes of experimental pop-icons like Peter Gabriel and Bjork (to name only a couple) to the South-Asian Soundtrack giant A.R.Rahman, and ultimate masters like Zakir Hussain and Selvaganesh, his seamless integration of ongoing studies and explorations deep in the heart of these multiple musical cultures and their implementation in both contemporary and traditional settings using a mind-bogglingly broad plethora of percussion instruments is a testament of how musical cultures all around the globe can find common ground to share respectfully when the right mix of passion, dedication, sensitivity, and respect are blended along the journey.   In this special episode, we catch up to talk about the challenges and rewards of walking the poly-cultural path, the effect of the agricultural revolution on the human mindset, and how fundamental, differences between musical traditions can still be interpreted and explored in a zeitgeist-relevant context that empowers and encourages the well-being of the planets socio-cultural health.
