Yissy Garcia: born with groove

Tom Tom Magazine – “I really don’t think it is something that I can explain with words. I think it is something that each person carries inside, beyond technical abilities or virtuosity, it has to do more with feeling, feelings that one is able to translate into the instrument so well that it touches other people. Groove is something you are born with, it is not something you can study. No audience can stand still to a solid pocket groove, and to make others feel something you have to feel it first. Groove starts with each individual drummer.”
