drumming in the chief

April 18, 2010

I drummed yesterday after many months, and as usual after a lengthy layoff, it went from a casual class to drumming for a visiting Chief from Ghana! Actually (since the Chief was really late) we mostly drummed for the increasingly-bored and disinterested crowd of Ghanaians who seemed to want nothing to do with traditional drumming. Another example of the “love your colonizer” mentality? Or the “we are different than those uncivilized people back home” mentality? Or maybe we were just terrible.
