Can-Do Musos TV Episode 2 (1hr) - Hosted by Andrew Hewitt from Sydney Australia. I'm in this episode
Can-Do Musos TV is an extention of Can-Do Musos (http://www.candomusos.com) a global organisation showcasing musicians living with a disability from all over the world.
We started Can-Do Musos in March 2013 at the studio of renowned drummer Dom Famularo in Long Island, New York. Present at this at this summit of sorts was Dom, Mike Mignogna, Andrew Hewitt and David Segal.
As of the 28th March 2016, we have 225 Can-Do Musos featured on our website from 25 countries, all living with a disability
Mike was born with Cerebral Palsy and in town from Tennessee. He’s played drums since he was 11 years-old and has limited functions in his legs. Mike has not let this stop him from playing and he chronicles it in a book entitled "Look Ma No Feet". It is a practical approach to the drum set for someone with limited or no use of their legs.
Andrew, who hails from Australia and also has Cerebral Palsy, had just flown in from California to meet us after giving a presentation at The Rhythmic Arts Project (TRAP). Despite being in a wheelchair, he has traveled all over Australia giving clinics and performing. Andrew, Mike and Dom played together at Australia's Ultimate Drummers Weekend 2009 in Melbourne.
David was born with arthrogryposis, which affects the development of the bones, muscles and nerves in the hands and feet, and had to have 12 corrective surgeries throughout his youth. In spite of that, the desire to play drums was burning inside him and studying with Dom and other master drummers/percussionists each summer at KoSA inspired David even more.
Dom Famularo, a great Ambassador of drumming saw the drive that the three of us had and helped channel our energies into a new organization that, although started by four drummers, was created to empower all musicians with disabilities.
