One of Mark O'Connor's mandolin signature pieces! "A Bowl of Bula"
Mark O'Connor's mandolin playing in this video from 1991. O'Connor wrote this mandolin piece in 1984 while in Fiji Islands. To hear a group version of this song, link here to a 1987 video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kxe7ug...
O'Connor became the World Mandolin Champion in Kerrville, TX as a teenager in 1982.
Mark plays violin exclusively as of 1997, giving way to a bursitis and tendonitis condition in his right arm that would not allow him to play the mandolin or guitar any further at his top form. But the condition allows Mark's violin bow arm technique to operate free from injury, with no hindrance.
