One great upper body


Although when I watched him performing his solo "My Exile is in my Head" I was a little worried for Qudus Onikeku - he was losing so much fluid (sweat), and yeah, generally such intense head-jerking can't be good for you.

He followed some Desi (Indian) strings in the solo, which was superb, especially the bit with his fingers plucking, you know, posed like an Indian dancer. Very memorable, I copy that move now sometimes. Like now. Like last night I was suddenly happy.

To love Qudus, catch him on stage somewhere in the world, or read his writings. Lucid as anything.
Come Dance With Me

P.S. Nothing wrong with the lower body, I just didn't see it. That can be fixed, no?
