Monday music: "The Drum Song," Adjoa Skinner

Recommended by our Brad Williams.

Here's the artist's explanation of the song:
This song is a medley of 3 different African folk songs that I learned while living in East, South and West Africa. The basic interpretation of the song is "For all that you have done for me, I thank you everyday, I thank you all my life".

A bit too sensuous for my taste. Thanks anyway.

I found this video whilst looking up lessons for the djembe a while back. I absolutely love that drum. It is so versatile. Ms. Skinner demonstrates a level of awesomeoness on it that I doubt I will ever achieve.
