Hi Jan,

best regards, see you in the park.


Stadtpark or Jenisch-Park?

Gruss,

Thomas

Hey, I'll be in Hamburg this summer! Is there any sort of park rumba scene there?

Hi rhythmrhyme,

no rumba, no scene. Just parks.

I'll probably be in town during the summer. Anyway, if you like, don't hesitate to send me an e-mail or a PM. Maybe we can even arrange a rumba, or we can just meet and hang out or jam a bit.

Greetings,

Thomas

I've never played in a traditional folkloric Rumba, the local cuban drummers really only want to play for money. I love the rhythms though and have fired many of them up with whoever will agree to play with me. There's been waves of interest out here but the west african thing is far more popular.

a bit of a hijack, but is it a reasonable thought to rent a car and drive up to Copenhagen for a few days when I'm there? Each time I come over I try to get to another country. My significant other's family wants to go to majorca for a "beach holiday". I'd probably be happier getting to know Hamburg a bit and then heading north, I had a great time in spain last time we were there.

July is holiday season. Mallorca will be overcrowded with people who want to party heavily. There may be beautiful spots on the island, but not on the beach, and probably not at that time of the year.

In Denmark, it is similar. Danish beaches and Danish villages are wonderful, especially on the little islands; but at that time they will be packed, especially with German families.

Copenhagen is just another big city. Traditionally, it used to have a great jazz scene, famous clubs like the Montmartre for instance. I'm not sure about the Latin scene, but it can only be better than Hamburg. I think Ignacio Guerra lives there.

Same thing as in your town with the Cubans over here. They either want money, or they may show up after two hours, fix a beer and split - at best. Usually I'm too proud to expose myself to those manners. There are some German drummers (no singers or dancers), but the better ones are constantly busy. And as far as I am concerned, I am not going to set up a rumba only to find myself in a workshop situation. I want to have some fun, too.

As a result, nothing happens.
