“The reason I play so many sounds, maybe it sounds angry, is because I’m trying so many things at one time, you see? I haven’t sorted them out. I have a whole bag of things that I’m trying to work through and get the one essential.” — John Coltrane
I think the funniest part of being a West Indian Afro Latino man is all the ways we celebrate cultures. We have a lot of Asian traditions. This is one of them. South America is a huge mixing pot. Ever since I was a kid we celebrated Chinese New Year with my cousins from China. That one day got me into iron teapots and lose tea leaves.
I feel this deep connections to my culture in the simple traditions. Somos todos uma pessoa. (We are all one person.)
