...thanks for your boat ride - Jerry and his Drums of Freedom had me vibrating long after we disembarked.
|Dear Rosemarie, |
Thank you for your exciting and uplifting performance and opening our show at the Long Island Music Awards. Sanga did not
win the World Music category, but it was a close decision - perhaps next year! Thanks again.
Robbie and friends,

I came all the way out from Brooklyn to see Madou (Dembele) perform in your "Spirit of The Drums" Concert , and it was worth it!

When you and Earth Beat and Sanga Of-The-Valley all came on stage to perform SAMBA, it was the most exciting day of my life! (almost).Thank you, thank you, thank you, for making SUNY Old Westbury a happening place! And we thought the snow and ice would stop us!! No way!

Dear Earth Beat ....
I really enjoyed your "Power of One Concert". So much talent on one stage and locally too. Thank you especially for the Young Blood Singers, it is not often we get the opportunity to see our Native American Brothers do their thing, and they were wonderful. My heart is still humming from the night.
|Rosemarie - |
Your amazing energy was awesome on stage at The Westbury Music Fair.
Thanks for lifting our evening to ecstatic heights!
Light and Love,
|Thank you Earth Beat and Rosemarie. Your 9th anniversary of your (Last Friday of the Month Tribal) Jam was the best yet. How do you do it? We were dancing out of our skin with all those drums and you and John and then Sanga's performance and everyone else who added to the night. Incredible! We have never had such experiences in all our years of drumming, and we have traveled far and wide to drum . Thanks for bring this community to our area. |

I was at the drumming Friday and just have to tell you - it was one of the most intense drumming sessions EVER. Keep up the great work!
Hey Guys - Your boat trip was beyond my wildest dreams. Drumming with Sanga and you guys into ecstatic trance on a boat under the full moon on The Great South Bay...does it get any better? When's your next one?
Rosemarie Ceraso, Rip, Heidi McClure, all of this Group and their amazing spirits giving us African Music and dance, another world opened to me... I get choked up when i remember the day Edgar Mills, my to be Partner...,was invited to play with EarthBeat, and from this discovered we might actually be able to be in a relationship together with the icing on the cake of being able to participate together in our same interests. Down in that Inner Light Center, that's where EarthBeat woke up
my body's soul and atomical awareness...
