“My nephew, who lives in Montreal, told me that his other uncle – Nasyr Abdul Al-Khabyyr – was cooking up this drum camp on a 300-acre farm just west of Montreal. I’d been to the farm before, and when my nephew told me about the lineup of drummers that were coming, I instantly knew I had to go to this camp. My second thought was that I had to go with my film crew.”
