African Musicians are truly ambassadors of peace. I am seeing more and more videos where Master Djembe drummers have gone into other cultures carrying the message of the drum. This is true of the Americas, Canada and Europe who have felt the growing influence of these musicians over the last fifty years. Now I am seeing more videos coming from Asian countries.
