Lamine was my teacher in Abene, In the Casamance region of Senegal. I spent happy hours under the shade of a tree marvelling at his playing ability, trying to understand his fast french and sharing cigarettes and a love of drumming.
It has always been my sincerest wish to get him here to play but it is no easy feat.
