So honored to be a part of this unforgettable Festival again!
For this Festival my Workshop will be on Sunday July 24th & is called
“When Ancestors speak through Rhythm”
It’s all about La Palabra Musical, The Music Of The Word,
the Rhythm that speaks in us & through us & our responsibility
in using this most sacred of gifts wisely.
Be ready to write, bring your instruments & be prepared to
surrender your egos to each other & the Music of the Word.
I want to unlock a waterfall of poetic metaphors as strong as
any Rhythm you’ve ever heard played on the Drum & see where it take us!!!
I’m ready, are you? Website: www.Avotcja.org
"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely
in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside,
thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming --WOW--what a ride!!"
