I’m just adding text to my photography (an experiment).

Sénéké performed at Q’4 at their new Global Rhythms Project, it was quite an experience. Sénéké ensemble performs traditional forms of West African music, song and dance. There are eight members; six drummers and two dancers. I really enjoyed their performance because it wasn’t just great percussion and dance, they went further and an educational component to their performance. Sekou Conde (above), the director of the group taught about the dances, the different types of drums, the styles of drumming, pollyrhythms and on the Malinke people of Mali and Guinea, West Africa.

I like this picture because Sekou has such a strongest presence as a performer. To me this image shows his passion, love and dedication for what he does. I respect that.
