Here's my first FCP edit (I've been using iMovie up until now). Timbila is a terrific local band with their very own brand of Afro-rock. Nora Balaban is on mbila, Banning Eyre is on guitar, Louise Bradshaw is on vocals, Dirck Westervelt is on bass, and filling in for injured drummer Ed Klinger, is Peter Lewis.
The song is "Nilevile" (pronounced neelay veelay) which translates to "I'm drunk" in Chopi.
Haven't gotten around to any cross fades, but most of the hard cuts seem to work okay.
All footage shot with Flip cameras, 3rd camera stationary wide shot, me roving on one, Justin Douglas from Afropop Worldwide roving on the other.
