Why are you interested in this group?

I don't know too much about contemporary African music. But I LOVE a lot of african music. I tend to be into more traditional musics but I'd be interested in learning about contemporary sounds. I studied hand drumming with Jordan Bennisann who is originally from Togo.

What is your current musical taste and dance move?

Recently I've been listening to a (xylophone?) player, from south africa I think, who goes by Mamadou Diabate, this is not the same person as the harp player.

Who is your favorite African entertainer? If any.

I really enjoy Ali Farka Toure's Savane album. But really anything.

Have you ever ventured out of U.S. or visited any African country? If yes, which country?

Uhhh... I've been to Mexico.

Introduction
