What a honour to be asked to compose and perform this piece while representing a portion of the National Canada Drum Celebration for 2020! With all the unfortunate events that are constantly unfolding this was a true breath of fresh air. Reconnecting and playing (while socially distancing) we had such a great team of musicians that represented Canada's wide cultural landscape. A true honour and a few minutes of personal pride grows within each of us as we rewatch this video. A huge thank you to John Donnelley, The City of Surrey and Troy McNamara, Christina Sing, Jonas Falle,Toshi Takahashi, Marlie Collins, Chiko Misomali, Francis James, Kabeer Panesar and Canada for allowing us to bring the beats to you on this very special day!
