"Following the influence of his grandfather, a well known herbalist, he discovered at an early age the healing force of certain spoken words and special drum rhythms,especially the "heartbeat rhythms".
The Warrior's Drum
"It was never beaten in anger
But throbbed in the sight of danger."
There is No Movement Without Rhythm, Original Version
Spectacular post from Bro. Kefentse Akim Bandele
"Dedicated to the people of baro.
Life doesn't' stand still, it's constantly moving. It has rhythm. The word for rhythm (used by the Malinke tribes) is "FOLI." It is a word that encompasses so much more than drumming and dancing. It's found in every part of daily life.
In this film you not only hear and feel rhythm but you see it. It's an extraordinary blend of image and sound that
feeds the senses and reminds us all how essential it is."
