Samba

I joined Samba Elegua for the Walk for Hunger fundraiser at Coronation Park. It was a lot of fun picking up the beat from other people. The kids were absolutely adorable, inventing all sorts of dance sequences on the fly.

We had a picnic lunch afterwards, and then we jammed for a while. It's interesting hanging out with people who just can't help drumming rhythms on whatever's handy - sticks, cups, roofs, posts. My background isn't musical, but I like mimicking and amplifying other people. I'm learning slowly. =)

Now it's back to my research...

On Technorati: ,

Random Japanese sentence: 村人たちは皆、行方不明になった猫を探すために山の中へでかけた。 All the villagers went out into the hills to look for a missing cat.
