Spirit speaks through the drum. Here he plays gongs, bells, rain stick, singing bowl, donno (West African talking drum), sheet metal, rachet, cymbals, & rototom, as well as his modified trap kit. “First of all, my thing is spiritual. Every human has a spirit – without it you’re dead – so your spirit is what I’m dealing with. Each note I play represents a certain message, so it depends on where I put the beat, on how I hit the drum that makes you respond to a certain thing. For me it’s a religious matter. Drumming goes with my religion. Drumming is a language – this language belongs to my religion. So, every time you see me walking, you see a religious person walking with a spirit. Everybody’s got spirit. Wherever you are, you’re a spirit of your own. So you have to find out about your spirit and make sure it gets on with other people’s spirits. That’s what happens when I play music with people.”
