I spotted a box of three tapes (that is why I bought the ceedee of the Big Bang later) full of percussion, in the Netherlands (Europe). After hearing the tapes in my car, they have stayed in the car. And each time that I drive, nothing can come between me and this beautiful collection of world rythm ! This box is fantastic !! It makes me dream of traveling to far distances, into unknown places where tribes drum on about anything that they can get their hands on and I dream then that I can take part in this tribe, in which they learn me how to use unknown forces to drum my heart out. And then suddenly I realize again that I am stuck in a traffic jam ! This ceedee is almost perfect. It would have been perfect if there had been no European or American percussionists in it ! Anyone who feels like I do can mail me for a chat about "drums in nature".
