Some years back, was gigging in Moengo, a bauxite town in Suriname, South America. And whiles the concert was going on, I saw an African looking drum at the backstage, so I grabbed it and brought it infront and started playing it.
the place went wild. After the concert, some of the people came telling us about how I played the drum exactly the way it is played. One guy actually said "We have known and heard we came originally from Ghana, but today you brought proof." That was some 8 years ago, busy with ministry and family, but I kept this in my heart. It's amazing how a simple drum can unite people. This impressed on my heart so much that after the tour, I decided my next CD will be called, JOURNEY OF THE AFRICAN DRUM. The vision would be to show how the drum has influenced all soughts of music around the world. And the beautiful things about it is that, African music is now being influenced by all these rhythms from South & North America. Creating a full circle. My passion and prayer is for the world to unite, especially black people. And in Moengo, I caught a glimpse of that glory. There's so much that unites us than divides us.
