Joel is a composer, bandleader, alchemist of musical ecology, and an American immigrant in South Africa. Above all, Joel loves to surrender and be played by Music. He weaves a global circle of sound, visual design, education and permaculture into a life rooted in faith, community, spiritual ascension and adventure.
He's known by the name of Karabo throughout southern Africa where he is the steward and composer of Roots Grown Deep, a post-genre musical ensemble which harmonizes African and Euro-American voices and traditions into a truly "world music". There is an entrancing multi-lingual, cross-cultural and community-oriented sound to his music, encouraging both contemplation and celebration. As a performer, Joel employs his voice in unique and untamed ways, while playing guitar, trombone, Hopi flute, piano or percussion.
He is a volunteer servant and guide of several ecological regeneration projects and considers access to nature and loving personal human relationships to be his primary forms of wealth. His guiding mantra is also the title of one of his albums: "Grow within and you shall not go without". Joel is a '06 DPU graduate of the DePauw School of Music, Honor Scholar and History Major.
