Dear Family and Friends,
Thank you for your prayers of support, love and light. Right now my Uncle Taumbu is resting and enjoying his final days surrounded by his family. We appreciate the spiritual and financial support but also asks that at this time he is allowed to rest.
Drummers - please play today and the days forthcoming with my Tio Bu in your hearts and spirits. The same for all musicians - play your flutes and other instruments with joy and him be strong through your music as he is received by our ancestors.
One Love,
The Ector Family

It is with sadness that I just found out about the passing on of Taumbu. I listened to his music and saw him perform many times. His person and music somehow found it's way into my heart. I am happy to donate a bit to help with expenses.

I have nice memories of a spiritual soul who gave us wonderful music. I featured his music on my KCRW shows, he was a guest artist in my UCLA classes, and even once played in my (then) new home with Felicidad. Peace and blessings.
