Hey Steering Wheel Beaters and Coffee Table Abusers,

Just wanted to share something:

The deeper I've gotten into drumming the more I've come to love dance. Drumming and dancing are inseperable. Check out some video I recently shot: https://youtu.be/Ep8cEan8AIs

back in the day soon after I began drumming, I played a bougarabou and took lessons from and played with a group of people doing largely african rhythms. I was told that in Africa, the reason to drum is for dance. If the was no one dancing, there was no reason to drum.

It's not the first time I've said it; it's like the chicken and the egg. I don't know which came first. but one leads to the other, which leads to the other . . .

Of course.
My first band was a Caribbean folklore group, with dance, songs and percussion, so I have to agree.
