Several people seemed to appreciate my rumba guaguancó today outside of the building where I work. Tomorrow you might just hear some mozambique or bembe.

It takes a while just to make a rhythm feel good. If it doesn't feel good to me it certainly won't feel good to anyone else. If your muscles are tense your groove will be tense too. I played cajón out there once but someone said he preferred my "real drum." You'd be surprized by how many people call my conga drum a "bongo."
