I recently had the priveledge of witnessing Tatsuya Nakatani at Mexicains Sans Frontieres. His avant garde percussion performance was impressive to say the least…
His performance utilised 3 massive gongs, a smaller (18inch?) gong, some prayer bowls, a few misc. objects and a kick/snare/tom combo all assembled in a cirlce formation.

After the last decade of conservatives in the government and media waging war on people of color, people from different religions, people from poor countries, and everyone else not perfectly “white and right” in the eyes of the Conservative American God, many people are starting to tune out all of the propaganda and see for themselves what is really happening out there in the real world. This is a large part of why I chose to attend the event.
