The drums of Africa still beat in my heart
— Mary Bethune

It's been several decades since I visited Kenya, Africa, but there are certain memories that still remain fairly vivid...like the sounds of the night, frightening shrieks of animals in the distance, that froze me to my bed. The bed in the small hut we stayed at for a couple of days was surrounded by white mosquito netting. It did not provide much protection, I thought, from those wild howls of death that awakened me. I pinched myself, literally, to see if I was in a vivid dream. Yet Africa was by far the country I would most likely want to return to. I cannot describe the fascination, the magic of that continent. It has to be experienced first hand.

Beryl Markham said it best for me: Africa is mystic; it is wild; it is a sweltering inferno; it is a photographer’s paradise, a hunter’s Valhalla, an escapist’s Utopia. It is what you will, and it withstands all interpretations. It is the last vestige of a dead world or the cradle of a shiny new one. To a lot of people, as to myself, it is just home.

We all see street performers downtown and busking in high traffic public places; it’s a good way for musicians to make some money while sharpening their skills. Did you know that some of the world’s most famous musicians got their start as buskers?

If you’ve had the urge to get out there and play your music in front of thousands of total strangers, not only is busking great practice it can be a possible doorway to a career with your music. Gather some courage and give it a try!
