Kumasi Teaches African RhythmsKumasi has been drumming for over 50 years and is skilled in many forms of drumming, African, Salsa, Carribean, Brazillian, Samba. He is teaching the Samba rhythm today with some African song and storytelling.
Skin so taut it makes a sound Energy from it flows all around. A beat of bass a slap of tone Makes me feel so not alone.
