2009 solo release from the bass player for Gypsy Punk powerhouse Gogol Bordello. Tommy was born and raised in Ethiopia and the knowledge of global rhythms he brings to Gogol's sound has become part of their unclassifiable approach to music. The Prester John Sessions is a collection of 11 songs including a remix featuring Gogol Bordello band mates Eugene Huts and Pedro Srazo and mixed by Michael Goldwasser of the Easy Star All-Stars. The record also features two collaborations with Gigi, one of the most popular modern Ethiopian singers. It was mixed by Victor Van Vugt (Gogol Bordello, Nick Cave).
