As if a new door had been opened for me
Singer-Songwriter / True Colors BEATS performer
Santiago invited me to participate in True Colors BEATS, and I was nervous at first. In an improv session, you never know what’s going to happen. I tried to protect myself by finding an instrument or something to beat on, but when the session started I realized I didn’t need to defend myself. It was like a therapy session as if a new door had been opened for me.
Watching Santiago lead the crowd of about 100 people, the majority of whom had never experienced hand-signs before, made me proud and inspired. The participants were wonderful, who built their music in three packed days and enjoyed improvising on the spot. I had a great time.
