What a beautiful day!



The Namory sunday class has great energy and spirit! I highly recommend it.

I have been really enjoying the classes after taking a hiatus for awhile. One thing that got me going again was seeing Juan play at drum circles and seeing how much his soloing had improved. I could see that the feel -and not just the official solo lines for a rhythm- had rubbed off on him. ...

We learn the solo djembe parts and the dunun parts and put it all together. We stick with a rhythm for several weeks so we really get to learn it.
