Set against the background of the poems is the beat of the African drums. Constant and life-affirming symbol of peace, love, compassion, freedom. Born in Cote d'Ivoire in West Africa, Francis is a spiritual leader. 'I aim to improve and maintain our mental wellbeing through poetry and African drumming. An Afro-beat to change our world. African drums have an evocative power which I use to achieve peace on earth.' African drums are used to celebrate life, communicate love and compassion, heal the mind and tackle loneliness. Smile, live, love, shine, keep drumming to lift your spirit up.
