The NEW Instructional CD's are now up on Amazon, here is info on the first one.
(Please share this around so we can get the word out)
Playing Along with African Rhythms is a series of CD's that will allow you to learn the Djembe, Djun, Kenkeni, Sangban, and Bell parts to African Rhythms. The complete rhythm is played together and then each part is broken down to individual tracks including both African (Yoruban) and American Vocalization for the Djembe parts. This is a great way to bring new rhythms into your life and to your drum circle.
The Rhythms on Volume 1 are:
Adjos - 8 Tracks
Moribayassa - 11 Tracks
Kanin - 11 Tracks
Dalah - 11 Tracks
This CD Series is specifically designed to introduce you to other rhythms that can be played, and this should be used as a guideline since rhythms vary by country and culture so you may find other variations of these rhythms, please do not consider this the end all for a specific rhtyhm and the way that it should be played.
Many of these rhythms also have songs and dances that go along with them you should do additional research online or with traditional drum and dance instructors for information on this.
I hope you enjoy learning these rhythms in this series, the use of looping was employed to ensure proper timing was maintained throughout each part, this will help you in keeping better time as well during the learning process.
