Role Description

Slow Drag: (Lead) possibly a rather large man; as his name implies, he appears to be slow, but he is deceptively intelligent, and has a wicked smile; innate African rhythms underlie everything he plays and he plays with an ease that is at times startling; plays bass in Ma's band. Note: Music will be recorded, but skill in this instrument would be a plus.
