I played an absolutely beautiful rhythm called Kakilambe today. It’s from the Baga people from West Africa and it is played to invoke a powerful forest god that tells your fortune for the year. The rhythm was music today, and it affected me and moved me so much that I actually was able to dance and play for the first time ever.

Hopefully today is reflective of my fortunes for the year – to hear and make music so sweet that it moves you – spiritually, emotionally and physically.
