It would be fun to hook up with a fellow djembefola member, so let me know if you are going.

The workshop is sponsored by the Drum Connection and spans four days.

Love,
Rachel

Hey Rachel,

I'd love to get down to this, but after bringing Mahiri up, I'm financially and mentally tapped out.

Boston does seem like a fair middle ground for us (you're in CT right?). It would be cool to meet another djembefola.com'er

Maybe next time.

(Oh yeah, I expect a review of your experience so that I can know what I missed!) ;)

Hi Carl,

I am sorry you can't make it. But yes, I will give a review!

(And by the way, I am in RI, so I am even closer than you thought.)

Day one: Wasn't there due to a terrible cold and a change in venue which made it almost a two hour drive. Stayed home to rest up for...

Day two: Tonight. FANTASTIC! I had an absolute blast and can't wait to get back tomorrow. Billy is a wonderful teacher. He broke things down in manageable parts and in a short two hours had 35 drummers playing the solo parts to Sofa. Plus all three dun dun parts. Not bad! I will write in more detail later, but for now, if there is any way to join us for the Saturday and Sunday workshops, do it! The guy is wonderful.

Love,
Rachel
