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.
