From “The New Orleans Voodoo Tarot”
“Durga, the warrior goddess, rides on a lion and carries damaru, a small double-headed, hourglass-shaped drum used in meditation practices…Lions are associated with the goddess in many cultures…All of these lion goddesses are associated with the drum that leads the initiate into the labyrinth of the mind in search of expanded states of awareness. At the threshold of the descent stand the great feline guardians.” When the Drummer’s Were Women” by: Layne Redmond

UNEDITED, RAW, UNREHEARSED Footage from my “Sensual Strength Training” DVD shoot in 2009. The DVD never came out due to damaged footage but another version is in the works.
This is a video of me performing in a small town in Costa Rica. I was in Costa Rica to teach my “Sensual Strength Training” Class but the school where I was teaching had a recital for the chilren and families and they asked me to do something to inspire the young dancers. San Isidro is in the South of Costa Rica and not much comes there. So there is an unrehearsed freestyle of Haitian Rara. The music is by Neg Mawon and Yatande out of NYC. I am doing a mixture of Haitian Rara moves with a little Haitian Ibo and my own twist. This is not the best example of my dancing but I keep being told to put more footage of me dancing so here goes…(smile)
