Beat the Donkey

I saw these guys again last night – Cyro Baptista and his band, Beat the Donkey.  The show conveys  pure joy at the wonders of sounds, rhythm, music, and cultures of the world.  Lisette Santiago and Clay Ross did a mean guitar-theremin duel on the cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song.”

This video, older and too dark, and also spelling his name the wrong way, conveys only a little bit of the energy of their performance.
