I really enjoyed reading this blog. It seems that like 'born again Christians' we are all somehow called to African drumming. How? Why? Who knows?
Watching someone play djembe one day at a school event while I was chaperone to 60 school kids, it hit me, it was like I had been slapped across the face, from that moment I was hooked and from that day everything fell into place. I found my first drum, my first group and my first teacher all within a week of this first live experience and my journey goes on from playing, to teaching, to drum repairs, to drum making.
Meeting the most wonderful people along the way, a journey that I hope will never end.
