Gill Many thanks for letting us hear this. My son was fascinated by African drumming and SO took him up to the Commonwealth Institute (earlier than 1990!) to hear a group, came back with drumsticks and we got a friend (a teepee maker) to make him an African drum out of wood from our trees and one of our goats skins. As a musician I thought I should opt for the writing, as I had already done quite a lot of research into world music. However this was good to hear!
