bienvenido hermano! someone in your country is bound to search for djembe players or drums in guatemala, and they will come across your post. so take courage, you'll soon find some drummers to play with. do you have any local music publications that you can advertise in? that is also a good way to find other drummers.

Hi man,

I went on a tour of Mexico and Guatamala about 4 years ago.. Played a couple of nights in towns around Lago Atitlan,, San Pedro and San Cristobal I think..(it was rainy season so the drum sounded crap) The scene wasnt as big as in Mexico where its realy taken off... Try finding some other players and contacting a teacher then. I try and bring a teacher over every three months.. If they are good they can give you alot to work on till the next time..
