Master drummer Onye Onyemaechi visited the Rohnert Park-Cotati library last Sat. along with a very musical and amazed crowd.

Onye showed the audience how loud the music becomes by banging on the drum. He requested the adults and children come to the front of the room and help interact with clapping, foot stomping, dancing and just to have a very delightful time.

The master drummer stressed how we should all get along with each other by eating together and music is a way of integration with all we do. He pulled colorful dresses and scarves out of a bag and had the audience dancing while wearing bright shades of colorful garb.

Onye has been called a gifted psychic healer, a medium and profit. His happy face and smiles made everyone in the room sing and sway to the chorismic style of music.
