Master drummer M’baye drumming for Bro. Simba

Master drummer Bro. M’baye fêting Bro. Simba Mlee at his funeral services on August 8, 2010 at the True Bethel Baptist Church on Swan St., Buffalo ,East Side. It was an experience for those gathered to hear the drums of a master drummer as he eulogized his friend Bro. Simba. M’baye entered slowly while playing the drum dressed elegantly in African attire. He walked down the aisle beating on the drum until he stood in front of the coffin continuing to drum for Bro. Simba. The videos posted for viewing at  the Latin Journal Blog from the Barrio and Emmett Till Social Justice Blog.
