It’s been 7 years since I started playing djembe. After taking lessons for several months, I went to see the African dance in lesson/practice session. .
I was very impressed with the energy created by drummers and dancers. Then I wanted to participate in this session to feel the energy.
Then several months passed.....I realized why the artists from other parts of the world took interest in the African arts. Picasso was one of them. 棟方志功 is another to name a few. There is something different about the energy.....I felt it so pure (maybe very primitive?) The more I put time into it, I wanted not just play, but I want to become the “Energy “. I want to be the “ Energy”.
It’s taking me long time, but, I feel content with my realization. This is my life work.
