Posted:Have you ever played with your poi hearing (and dancing on) a djembe (percussion) music backgorund?
I need help to produce a percussions session.
I'm lookin' for someone who could take a look at my work (djembe) and tell me if it fits well with your art (poi).
I mean: I'm starting recording in a week,maybe two. When I have recorded the first 2 or 3 samples I will surely need somone,possibly with a fast internet connection,ready to receive mp3 files from me,listen at my work and tell me if it's good to dance on while doing poi.
Did you understand what I mean??
Please contact me if you are interested in this project.
Thank you so much.
I'm leaving now,see you soon.

PS: I just speak a little english... Did you notice it?

PPS: to the administrator: I hope I'm posting this message in the right directory. If I'm not,you are free to move this post to the right directory of course. Thanx.

Posted:Yeah, at my college co-op, we had some amazing drummers (one of them an olympic runner, too) who would drum while we spun.

Not even the best trance can compete with a good live drummer.

Posted:yes live drumming is good. there was this thing in nottigham called one big day out or something.
anyway there were two live drummers and a live dj as well .
couldnt resist a bit of poi yknow. actualy had to run to the shop to buy some to do poi with as i didnt have any on me. it was really nice to poi to . the regualar and irregular beats link your tricks together for you and give you inspiration on how to move.
im a big fan of poi to music anyway and i like el nino which is sort of harsh metally music with a south american samba type beat thrown in.
my housemate kez does bongos and in the summer you can to poi to a bongo beat or bongos to a poi beat.
id be interested to hear. if i find a way its possible ill let you know.

my original signature was tooo long.
this one is shorter

The pessimist fears this is true.
