David Smith

David Smith was born in Jamestown, New York and met Ravi Shankar and George Shearing at the Chatauqua artist colony where his father worked before David was three years old. The family moved to Pennsylvania in search of spiritual work and landed in Camp Hill. David continued his studies and pursued sports and music with an undergraduate degree in Ethnomusicology. After university studies he moved to California in search of fertile soil. Currently David is involved in studio sessions and live playing in California, breaking new ground while preserving The Tradition.
