My name is Giles Smith I am from St. Thomas Virgin Islands and currently live in Puerto Rico. I am looking for instruction in Yoruba language. I am a percussionist who loves the music and culture of the Yoruba people of Nigeria. I am also very found of the Djembe fola music of the Malinke people.
I want to learn Yoruba because of its richness and its poetic style. Also, the indigenous culture of the Yoruba people has so much to offer, I would like to one day travel their and be able to communicate with the people in their language. I have done so in France as well as in Puerto Rico and would like to do so in Nigeria.
