What a blessing ringing in New Year's Day 2016 with a family visit to Ocean Beach in San Francisco. Now I'm sitting with a Negroni in hand - equal parts Batiste Rhum Ecoist, Campari and Maurin French Red Vermouth - listening to these sounds from West Africa, South Africa, Brazil, France and the Caribbean looking forward to all the adventure that tomorrow brings.
