gone montuno Taino Puerto

flown to celestial gardens

of Bantu blood and bones


spirits flash


fire dance in the land of three over two


/ cowbell leads /


lucky strikes

white shirt

sepia times suit




conguero extraordinaire

early gleaned I ear informed insight

your congalogy / cracking fever pitch

through record player afrojazz air fresh swirled

soothed the brooding heart and hand

inspired shining

afternoon autumns of youthful quests

About a. edward watkins

With the exception of 2 years study of western music theory and harmony- I am a self taught percussionist, writer and abstract painter. Not your drummer boy drummer - not your writerly writer nor the painterly painter. Creativity is an integral aspect of my existence - as it is for us all - in some form or another. My experiences in life have informed and shaped my world view profoundly. I am the disrupter - the never quite satisfied - the relentless creator of word, sound and image. I question the answers and question the questions.
