Kingsley Onyemauche Ike marches to the beat of his own drum. Literally.
The Nigerian came to China in 2008 to study medicine, fell in love with a Chinese classmate, got married and decided to stay on.
He also decided to add a second string to his career – playing the djembe. The West African drum, shaped like a goblet with animal hide covering the top, is becoming a frequent sight in China.
Ike’s band plays the djembe all across China. His dream is to open a djembe club so that people can learn and appreciate African music and performance. #ChineseDream #MyDream
