Michael Rodriguez & Felix

Willie posted a great video on Street Level, with Mark Weinstein at the Taller Latino Americano on the Upper West Side. A couple of minutes into the tune, Mike and Felix (who were playing the tumbas) get a chance to stretch out. I wanted to highlight this segment in order to show the late Mike Rodriguez getting down.


Not only that but I happened to be checking out Emilio Barreto's site and in the video tab there is an excerpt to a Santisimo lecture. Emilio is giving the lecture, Gina Iyaleo is dancing, Felix is on Iya, Brandon Rosser is on Itotele, and guess who is on okonkolo? Hmmm?....

Check it out and see for yourself.

Dude, I hear you, but can't see you.
They've got you just out of camera angle!

Cool clip though, for certain.

Ah sorry man, it sounded like it was you from your post. I can see now that the whole post is about Michael. Good lecture though.
