Antióquia with Abdoulaye Diakate at Ashkenaz 8/8


I have yet to see this band, but my good friend Maria knows them well, and insures a good time. There is some kind of a drum workshop for beginners, by Drummm, a commmpany that does percusssion workshops for alll people... http://www.drummm.com/

I looked into mr Diakate, and he looks HEAVY... hope he gets some time to shine, with all that's going on that night... man, will the band even get to voice a plug for the new CD??
