the heartbeat, the drum
They don't call them *festivals* for nothing.
The Salem Oregon World Beat Festival is an amazing event.
It does the soul good to go to a place where all cultures are embraced, honored & celebrated.
This is all that is *right* with the world.
A cart full of drums Obo Addy brought along for his drumming workshop
The Drum workshop
"I could drum all day, but they tell me we've got 5 more minutes for this workshop"
Obo Addy takes a moment in the sun for a picture w the cart of drums.
Just back from the World Beat festival.....
What better thing to do than go drum with drum master Obo Addy!
Got to sit in on a drum workshop with him.
More photos later....
