Global predicament

Dudley Leggett – Director of Sustainability Research Institute, Suffolk Park Phillip Frazer’s article, (Echo 6 January) is an excellent summary of...

Palumara is a fish soup dish that comes from the Bima tribe of Sumbawa island in Indonesia, the island where Tommee and both of his grandmothers were born.

This is the dish that inspired Tommee to craft his new album (number 7) Recipe. On the album, Tommee sings, plays guitar and combines this with the sounds of the pandeiro (Brazilian tambourine), double bass and cello bass.

These have all been blended into an exotic tasty dish.

All the song titles on the album are the names of the ingredients needed to make the palumara. On tour, Tommee plays guitar and kecapi, and sings, and will be accompanied by Walter Piccolruaz on pandeiro and Shannon Green on the bass. Tonight at the Drill Hall in Mullumbimby, 7.30. Tickets at Mullum Bookshop or at the door.
