Hi Djembe lovers,
We’ve got a great newsletter for you this month.
First of all don’t miss the chance to win a signed copy of Monette’s new album, Coup d’Eclat. All you have to do is give us some feedback about what you’d like to see more of in the newsletter and on the djembefola.com in general.
We also have a video interview with Master Djembefola, Amara Kante from Guinea, a great new article about how to choose a djembe and much more.
Interview with Master djembefola – Amara Kante
He was kind enough to do an interview with me and my friend Pierrot, after a brilliant workshop he gave here in the South of France. I have to say this was the most challenging workshop I’ve ever done and his knowledge goes very deep.
Amara is a passionate traditionalist and this is definitely worth checking out, click here to check it out..
This one’s in French folks, but there will soon be subtitles soon, so check back if your don’t speak Francais!
A guide to choosing a djembe
Paddy, a regular contributor to djembefola.com, has put together a really detailed, illustrated guide for buying a djembe.
Whether you are buying your first djembe, or considering buying your 10th drum at some point in the future, everyone can learn something from this article.
New Artists Section
Due to positive feed back and a need to better organise our artist’s biographies, we have created a new ‘djembe artists section’. Our ever hard working Bubudi has also added 5 new biographies for us to enjoy. I really enjoy reading these and learning more about the masters who’s music we enjoy so much.
