Hello there! My name is Susan Badillo and I'm 24. When I was in kindergarden my parents gave me a pair of bongoes (best present ever) and those were my introduction to percusive instruments. I still have them back in the house where I grew up.
Now I play the drums but at family reunions I always go back to using the basics, such as djembe, shakers, cajón and more and I really love it. I started playing all of this without classes and now… I still play just by feeling.
This video is the first I make of the kind, and it was very exciting, especially because I didn't know what to expect and I'm happy with the result. People often say that percussive instruments aren't music and I want to prove them wrong!
Hope you enjoy my little experiment!
