How to Play Djembe Book/CD – This “how to” book is a complete, step-by-step, user friendly course on how to play djembe. Right from the start, in addition to learning how to make all the basic strokes, you’ll be learning interlocking parts for some of the most popular West African rhythms; Kuku, Djole, Kassa, Madan, Suku, Sunguru Bani and Thiba. After working through only a few drum lessons, you’ll be able to put the drum parts together and start playing these irresistible rhythms with your friends. The rhythms are written in simple charts, so no music reading is required. The CD that comes with the book gives you a chance to hear how each part sounds separately and how the parts for each rhythm fit together. It was recorded by John Camara, a master drummer from Bamako, Mali. Each rhythm lasts at least five minutes, so you’ll have plenty of time to play along. And when John solos during the final three minutes of each track, you’ll feel the thrill of playing your part along with an ensemble and lead drummer. If you’re ready to learn how to play djembe, this great lessons book is for you!  Softcover book approx. 8.5″ x 10.75″ and 96 pages.
