Toccata & fuga

My life in a nutshell

1.

Vititi Congo

Guanabacoa, Cuba, 1967
Ever since I can remember I felt an unbearable yearning for the tropics and African drumming. I attained both for the first time in Cuba where I was sent on a scholarship from my university in Budapest, to complete my master degree in Latin American literature. There I learned drumming in African religious settings, with all that this trade implies in the host cultures: spirituality, morality, community. Upon initiation into the Vititi Congo “house” of the Congo cult I received the name and mission Millero Congo (Congo seedbed) which made drumming a lifetime apostleship for me.
