Hear Here: Carolyn Brandy's mysterious dream

Caroyln Brandy started playing the conga drum in the late 1960s.

“It was something that women didn’t really do back in those days,” Brandy says. “You didn’t grow up and think, ‘I’m gonna be a conga drummer.’ I started just being really mesmerized by the conga.”

Ever since she was a young girl, Brandy has also been mesmerized by a mysterious dream. She shared that story with our Hear Here community storytelling project.
