When you think of "tribal drumming" do you think of 8 or 10 people beating the same drum? Maybe you do if you've been hanging around here since late November of 2008. Because that was the first time I featured this group from the American Indian Heritage Celebration (By the way, that's the name they gave it, not me so the PC police can get offa my cloud, okay?) By the time this stage of the proceedings rolled around, there were two drums and two inter-tribal groups pounding them -- and in rhythm not just within the group (hard enough) but with the other group as well. Most impressive!Violence UnSilenced
Stumble This!

Watching artists at the top of their game is one of those joys of life I can never get enough of. The look on his face is so full of joy that it's hard for the casual observer to resist the urge to dive right in. Infectious spirit...even on a flat LCD panel. Amazing pic.
