Hi Helen, thanks for the note. It's great to cross paths with a fellow seeker. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better; the djembe, dun, kenkeni and songba were my main drums for many years until I transitioned over to the balafon and kora. Maybe one day we'll get to sit in a drum circle together.
Yes, I know it's playable, I was asking if YOU actually played it, as opposed to, say, David Holt: is HELEN, THE PIED PIPER OF PERCUSSION playing it? I play (at) it, myself, along w/ a number of other fun instruments.
I won't even pretend to know what other instruments you play - nor will I try to pronounce them; if you can both pronounce and play those instruments, you're "a better man than I am"! OK, maybe that's not the way to put it, but you get my drift, right? I think I may've seen some of your drums on that exotic website out in SF, CA I think - name escapes me at the moment - but I'm sure you know it.
Anyway, thanks for catching up - we'll continue this as we learn and grow, right!?
Welcome to Professional Storyteller. Glad you joined the site. You are so pretty. You and Sondra must make a pretty dynamic duo! You two should join the "It Take Two - Tandem Telling" group. I also use a lot of rhythm and song in my storytelling. So much fun. Hope you enjoy exploring... Happy Tales to You!
