Tambor Party with Ezel (OCHA Records/Yoruba Records) and MJQ

This past weekend really opened my eyes as a dancer and as a being. I appreciate all who showed Love through dance and music. Thank you Salah, Nabani, Stan Zeff, BE, Ezel, Kai Alce, Kemit and Cullen Cole. You all are some of the individuals that I will ALWAYS support because of what you do. Thanks for everything.

Yeah, so umm back to what I was about to write: Tambor Party was off the hook! I have never felt the amount of spiritual energy in a long time until Saturday night. I give thanks for Ezel rolling through. Saw this cat at the G++dness WMC party and he ripped it! Too bad my ass had on a dress and the space WAS PACKED! That night was ridiculous. I wore out the floor and my ancestors were there with me while I danced. I felt it.

When I say I am a dancer, I mean it. I have NO time for conversation and that is how it should always be. Conversion closes the gate to music. I felt everything in my being just go and I was taken to another place. On Sunday night, I headed over to MJQ. If ANYONE remembers DEEP Saturdays, you will know that Kai Alce, DJ Kemit and Cullen Cole NEVER disappoint. Kept the energy flowing. When Kemit started with the MLK speech and went RIGHT into Donnie's 'Holiday' that Ron Trent remixed, I knew it was about to be an amazing night. When Sunkids ft. Chance's 'Rescue Me' came on and I lost it! That is one of my favorite tracks of all time. Brings back memories every time I hear that track. Cullen brought the heat with some hotness I have not heard in years. Hearing 'Reasons' (which I have on a white label) being played through speakers, also made me smile. Kai playing Vikter Duplaix's 'Electric Love' remixed by Boddhi Satva kept my spirit and soul smiling even more. I do not think people realize how much I LOVE music and in this instance, good music with a sound purpose and positive vibes rolling through and through.


  1. I was googling the Tambor party and ran into this post. Just got done telling a friend about the Tambor Party next Saturday and how it is was the best time I've had dancing in awhile. BTW, I think I've seen you dance before at MJQ, and I know I recognize you from the pool party at the W on Memorial Day. You're very gifted.

  2. Thanks papa for the Love. Do not miss the next Tambor and all the other wonderful events here in ATL
