Accompanying himself on the electric mbira, an African thumb piano, his melodic percussion transforms Appalachian music and blues into a kind of trance-inducing experience. Joachim’s first instrument was the drums, playing with his father both live and in the studio. These touring and recording projects allowed him to share stages and recordings with Johnny Cash, Ali Farka Touré, V.M. Bhatt, Steve Earle, John Lee Hooker, Dr. John, Nick Lowe, and most notably the Buena Vista Social Club. Over the years, Joachim has maintained this close relationship with his father, solidifying his reputation as a lyrical drummer and establishing himself as a powerful solo performer. Joachim will be accompanied for the Maui concert by bass guitar player Mark Fain. His latest album is “Over That Road, I’m Bound,” using country music songs from Uncle Dave Macon of the early 1900s as a launching point. Cooder’s website is joachimcooder.com
