The Studio@620 invites you to this unique musical event featuring Master Drummer Papa Malick Fay and JAYN, a World Percussion group that shares the creative, spiritual magic of drumming. Together they will perform in an effort to raise funds for further educational drumming initiatives. Malick sees drumming as a way to reduce social violence, since the physicality is a way to release pent up energies. Don't miss this transcendent presentation!
