Celebrating another great year together!

Last week while we gave thanks for all good things in life the drums went on break and the studio was silent…

I couldn’t help but dream of being in La Guinea.

Though it was only 2 years ago that I was gathering supplies and packing bags for an incredible trip to the birthplace of these rhythms, it feels like a decade. I can’t wait to return!

Perhaps some of you will join me next time ~ Winter 2015, anyone? That’s when I’m hoping for.

While we prepare to celebrate with loved ones over the coming month and perhaps seek organizations to support in our gift-giving, I’d love to encourage you to support Youssouf Koumbassa’s project, Nimba Center for Arts and Sustainable Energy. Please click HERE to learn about this fantastic project.

For the month of December I hope you’ll join me in celebrating this past year together as we send off 2013 with the energetic dance and rhythm, Soboninkun.


I’ve missed you these past few weeks and can’t wait to see you all again tomorrow night! In the meantime, feel free to join me in dreaming of Guinea…

See you on the dance floor!
