XANADU: Jimmy Lopez

Jimmy Lopez has been a friend since we met on Instagram watching each other’s feeds. I’ve been a fan of Jimmy’s since I’ve seen his name on flyers over the years as Percussionist for DJs within House and World Music Styles throughout NYC and beyond. He is the veteran Live Percussionist at Brooklyn’s Bembé, where he accompanies DJs through entire nights of sweaty dancing rhythms.

Reprogramming.

Deeper we grow…

Below is a gallery of recent beauty through my eyes from this past week. Grateful to reunite with friends and family as new conversations unfold and new ideas begin to bloom. Drum & Flow Daily Zoom Class has been a beautiful new daily ritual brightening my days and connecting me with my partner. I’ve been back to surfing and biking every morning, continuing to eat clean, and taking more action to implement more contentment to my mornings. Being back in nature everyday is the Grounding I have been subconsciously seeking. Awaking for an early morning workout in nature before drumming and creating soundscape for Drum & Flow gives me a deep sense of comfort and gratitude that I get to enjoy the contents of my days, gather my inspirations, and shine my light.
