How did you hear about us?

Web search

Do you have a drum or percussion instrument? If so tell us about it!

I have two Guinean djembes, Indonesian djembe, ashiko, Egyptian doumbek, set of Cote d'Ivoire dunun, a frame drum, and a Peruvian cajon bongo.

Do you play other instruments, if so which?

I dabble with the didgeridoo, shekere, Native American flute, and an assortment of shakers and thingamajigs that make noise.

What are your goals as a drummer/musician?

I want to draw the character from my drum by perfecting the sounds, and learning traditional West African rhythms. To be "in the moment" and immersed in the beat is the ultimate high. I love playing in a group, listening to the drums interact and talk to each other.

Introduction

The drums of Africa beat in my heart. I find them very primal, while at the same time weaving intricate stories.
