I’ve been playing the drum set for as long as I can remember. Then, in 2010 my life changed when I met Mamady Keita, my djembe Guru, may his soul rest in peace. I realized that I was following him all over the world like Mary’s lamb and learning from him in a new country each year, absorbing as much music and information as I could from him. I was playing the djembe a lot more than I was playing the drum kit. Eventually when I got back on the kit, both my musical sensibilities and what my hands could do on the kit, had changed. This video series is a product of this journey and exploration. My aim with this project is to inspire you, drummers with musical ideas to explore and have amazing musical epiphanies.
