"This is my djembe; I built it in Peru. It's my spirit drum, so I carry it everywhere."
"How did you end up going to Peru?"
"Well, I went down there to volunteer, and a good brother, Andres, woke up out of a dead sleep and asked if I wanted to build a djembe right as I was leaving. I just put my stuff down and said, 'Yup.' And then he introduced me a week or two later to a maestro who builds djembes and didgeridoos out of cactus, and he taught me how."
"So what does your spirit drum do for you?"
"It helps people wake up. And me." (Laughs)
