Please help Sulyman el Coyote  
Last week, the gifted musician and metalworker, Sulyman el Coyote, lost everything he owned (including his instruments and workshops) in a fire in the Santa Cruz mountains.

If you have been dancing for any length of time, you know Sulyman as one half of the legendary band Sirocco. He and his bandmate, Armando ("Uncle") Mafufo, have been providing unsurpassed music and instruction for dancers and musicians for decades. Their music has enjoyed a renaissance as Tribal-style dancers have rediscovered their classic albums.

I had the great opportunity to dance briefly with them as a baby dancer and it was like a dream come true. They are truly sensitive artists who work with their dancers to create beauty.

There is a link on the Sirocco website to assist Sulyman in his time of need. The page is not loading right now, but please keep trying. If you are new to their music, take a moment to enjoy some samples of their work, and maybe buy a cd or two for yourself.
