You’re going to start thinking I’m obsessed with sousaphones, considering how many shots of sousaphone players I post relative to the rarity of the instrument (see Kirk’s Work, Rebel Edward and Joe’s Rainbow). You wouldn’t be all wrong, although obviously it’s helped by the fact that a lot of the music I love features sousaphones and that it’s a very graphical instrument. Anyway, this was my first time live seeing the guys of Ceux Qui Marchent Debout, aka CQMD and their sousaphone player Roufi. It was actually a gig by the Madd Vibes Brass Band which is a combination of CQMD and Fishbone frontman Angelo Moore. Anyway, I tried to do something a little different here and outline only Roufi’s silhouette and that of his instrument. Quite pleased with the results, I must say.
