Hello, well it continues to be a challenge to sit in the Okonkolo chair but I am feeling a bit more comfortable playing. And again, what a difference when you play and sing verses dance and sing. I love all aspects and continue to have a great respect for bata drummers that sing at the same time! We had a friend up for two sessions, Michael Lannon. He is a great bata drummer and the "Drum Doctor" from San Francisco! And he gave me a pointer about playing and technique. So thank you Mike Lannon! The singing has started so I play the oru seco then sing the oru cantado. Well let me clarify! I try to play the oru seco then try to sing the oru cantado! What a blessing to be able to do that which one loves. And again thank you ACTA!
