Djembe Drummers as Ambassadors of Peace

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. Here is a video of Aly Traore playing with a group of Japanese drummers. These guys are having so much fun; you just want to jump in and start dancing! Enjoy!

The Ujamaa African Dancers and Drummers gave a smashing performance at the Colorado Black Arts Festival on July 19. The performance featured Fatu Lady Drummer as Musical Director, Cleopatra Jones as choreographer and local legends: Choreogapher Carmen Toure Lorenzo steppin out on the Douns, Stephan Cole Griffin, Senaku Reddick, Reuben Lorenzo, and Hip-Hop Master Deandre Carroll. The show opened with a tribute to Baba Adetunji Joda for twenty five years of teaching Yoruba dance and drum to the Denver Community. The group then proceeded to perform Kaki Lambe/Sonsornet, Mandiani with solos and a few improvisations. An excellent ending to a fun filled family packed weekend.

Orisha Music Comes of Age

[vsw id="yX7ffny-FBE" Source="youtube" width="425" height="344" autoplay="no"]
I love Facebook! From time to time, someone posts some wonderful tidbits that are worthy of reposting.  Here is one such tidbit sent to our  in-box by a friend who knows we love Orisha music.  Chacao, of Cuban fame,  performs a suite for Eleggua, Orisha of the Crossroads. This piece is really sweet.   In addition to nice harmonies (often lacking in Orisha music) Chacao adds some tasty little runs on the cello. A classical touch.  Now that’s nice!
