  • It was indeed an HONOR and a PRIVILEDGE to have joined the Lula Washington Contemporary Dance Foundation (LWCDF), at TWC 2010 for a NIGHT AT THE VILLAGE; AS a devoted Drummer/Percussionist, Vocalist, and Performer, it is truly HEALING, INSPIRING, NURTURING and EMPOWERING to work with such talented and full of humility Artist as Lula Washington, Rene Fisher-Mims, Nizinga Camara, Djembe Jan, Ce Tomalli, to name only a few along with a host of incredible dancers LIKE Eve, Angela,... and stage hands. The ancestors are rejoicing behind our tribute to Minerva and our painstaking welcoming perssesion. I am utterly humbled and immaculately GRATEFUL for the opportunity to have been amongst such incredible women and agents of change our communities so desparately depend on to improve the quality of life locally, as well as globally...and beyond. Peace and Abundant Blessings Siempre, QMTabia.
