Now Arriving:West African Drumming Playalong

From M'Bemba Bangoura and Michael Markus

Get out your headphones and get to work with these brand new tracks

Listen to M'Bemba's introduction to learn the history of each rhythm directly from the source, and then dive in to learn breaks, djembes parts, dundun parts, and solo phrases. M'Bemba plays an original solo, then he repeats phrases in a call and response so you can play along, followed by a long track of the full ensemble accompaniment to practice along with. The tracks also work well for practicing dance, or playing along on any instrument to get a feel for the rich rhythms of Guinea, West Africa.
