Ancestors Talk Through Drums

This video segment from EGG:the arts show documents Camilo Molina Gaetan, a fourth grader from Spanish Harlem, as he works to become a master drummer. He is learning to play many styles of Afro-Caribbean music like the Rumba from Cuba and the Bomba from Puerto Rico. He has been playing drums since he was four years old. Camilo wants to play all kinds of drums. His teacher enjoys teaching Camilo because he says it is important to pass the tradition down to the next generation.
