Interview with Percussionist Eric Bobo

Before going on the road as a member of Cypress Hill, percussionist Eric Bobo sat down to talk about playing in the high school band, his life on multiple world tours and the joy of introducing music lovers to unreleased recordings by his legendary percussionist father, Willie Bobo.  Eric began playing at age five influenced by his father's Afro-Cuban sound that would take him on the stage with The Beastie Boys, currently with Cypress Hill and in to the future with his own project, Ritmo Machine.  But it was the discovery of his father's recordings and photographs that put him on a journey back in his own musical roots.  Origional tapes were found, restored and remastered for a new audience.  Photographs of Willie's life as a young artist once only seen by family members were shared with the world.  The result is an album titled "Dig My Feeling."  Eric is currently working on releasing new material.  I'll let him tell you in his own words
