    I would attend this event because it sounds amazing. Get a crew to come out and dance all night long!

    I would like to win because I am a folklorist and anthropologist who is fascinated with African music. I grew up listening to Yoruban stories and drumming and I haven’t heard it in so long. It sounds like a rejuvenating experience!

    My late husband had a variety of hand drums which I have started playing out of the blue. I would LOVE to hear and watch how Nojeem plays that talking drum, as well as the rest of the players. I could use a good beat soaking.

    I am absolutely dying to hear this band, I have heard so much about them, and it is time to see them live and in person. Plus I have not been dancing in many months now, please help me shake it up to a band that has been on my list for a very long time.
    I promise to dance harder than anyone :)
