A few years later, Yeshe began spending his winters in different West African countries furthering his musical studies and touring extensively through Europe. He left Europe in the mid 80s, based in Tokyo for 5 years, performing and studying aroung Asia. From the early 90s Yeshe has been based in Australia, playing and touring with numerous bands there and internationally. Currently Yeshe works and tours with Harry Manx, U.S.
based Afro Funk band Panjea and Didgeridoo virtuoso Ganga Giri (Real World recording artist) as well as building his own solo career. He has played at so many festivals he has long since lost count, favourites include Glastonbury (England), Sziget (Hungary) and Woodford (Australia). Yeshe continues to teach dynamic percussion workshops to share his love of the music that is such a big part of his life and through his own studies in Africa became involved in establishing cultural centres in Ghana and Zimbabwe to which he took westerners to study African drumming, dance and culture. Yeshe has been recorded on 20 or more different albums with as many different artists around the world.
His own solo career as a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist blossomed in 2000 and in 2003 he finally released his first solo EP Offspring co-produced by Harry Manx. In late 2004 he released his first solo CD World Citizen with Canadian label Dog my Cat Records and became a finalist in the Australian Dolphin Music Awards in the New Recording Artist category.
