About Stew Bamrah
Stew Bamrah is a DJ and didgeridoo player. His DJ sets are built on a foundation of funk, disco, hip hop, African, Latin, reggae, house and drum n bass, focusing on solid grooves into which he weaves live didgeridoo. Stew also accompanies fellow DJs, performers and bands, creating sounds that blend in smoothly with the music.

Stew believes that a performance should take the listener on a globe-trotting, time-travelling expedition full of twists, turns and experiments.
