Kokoro the blind drummer



I return to Tinubu Square in today's post with this statue of Lagos' popular blind minstrel Kokoro the Drummer. This statue was raised in honour of the minstrel who died in January. He was 83 years old. Here's a link to read more about the life of the minstrel who became blind early in life and turned to music to earn a living.

I love the drummer sound, i feel energizer every time that i listen music where the drummer is notable. i think any band could be sustainable itself without a drummer.
