Billy Konate

The son of possibly the most famous djembefola of all, is teaching a workshop this weekend and I have been going and dang, I am having fun.

Billy is a great teacher, I think. He gauges the skills of his students very accurately, then pushes you to your limit in the gentlest possible way.

I will happily write up a full report when it is all over, but in the mean time, if you have the opportunity to study with him while he is here (just three short weeks, sigh.) GO!

Oregon next. Then back to Boston.

Whirlwind gig.
