5 QUESTIONS for Ben LaMar Gay
- First musical experience or song you can remember?
One of my first musical experiences was on Chicago public transit while in elementary school. Almost every day there would be an ensemble of older high schoolers on the city bus performing a call and response game called,"Gigolo". These performances involved loud chants and bombastic rhythms that would eventually lead to a soloist improvising dance moves to state who they are and how they in fact, do the "Gigolo". All of this sound was created while in rapid transit through Chicago's Southside.
