We March to the Beat of a Different Drummer: Got a Problem With That?

You didn't think you were going to get one song after another without any commercial breaks, did you? Here is the commercial for West African drummer, Bolokada! So cool. Don't miss it!

Our little club of beatniks is welcoming West African Drummer, Bolokada, to Elizabethton, August 22nd. Click the poster to enlarge and read the description below:

A DRUMMING CELEBRATION--Come hear and take a class with world known djembe drummer, Bolokada Conde, from Guinea West Africa at First Presbyterian Church in Elizabethton, TN (543-7757) on Saturday, August 22, 2009.

The drumming class is 4-5:30 p.m. and the exciting, dynamic performance with Bolokada and the Tonali Drum Group of Asheville, NC is 7-8:30. Fee for class and evening performance is $30. For the performance alone, $10.

He is an awesome performer from Guinea and visits this country during the summer (this year he is here from 8-13 to 8-23) to share in the development of drumming and raise a few funds to help build a school for his village. He is sponsored through Skinnybeats Drums in Asheville, NC. Check out Skinny Beats.

Spread the word! Hope to see you!
