A drummer since the age of eight, Rhythm Traders founder Brad Boynton set off in 1990, for a nine month trip to West Africa, with a degree in Anthropology and his backpack. He chose Africa because it appeared to be the epicenter of rhythm itself. Whether it was American jazz, Brazilian Samba, or Cuban Rumba, all roads pointed back to Africa. While in Ghana, he lived with nomads, drummers, drum makers, fortune tellers, and oral historians. And today he is going to share some stories about his journey.
