The Master Talking Drummer

Bisi Adeleke

I had the opportunity to befriend and study with Bisi in 1990. I was one of his first American students at University of Washington when he was a visiting “master talking drummer” from Nigeria care of U.W. School of Ethnomusicology. It is great to verify he is still inspiring thousands of American musicians with his African gifts. Please note this is the second master musician we’ve presented who was recruited by U.W. to teach in America. A Pacific Northwest tradition.
