„I perform as a musician since more than 35 years and I even got into Ecstatic Dance before I was born: While pregnant my mother heard darabuka drummers, so I started ‚dancing‘ inside my mothers womb. This was not only my initiation into drumming but also into Ecstatic Dance—since I was obviously barefoot and did not speak.
