introduction by mickeroo on Thu Jul 07, 2011 6:38 pm
Hi there from Canada,

I love playing my djembe even if I don't really know what I'm doing. It's a great stress release and fun to play with others. I have used my drum in the classroom with secondary school students and they love it too!

3/12 practice group by gr3vans on Sun Mar 28, 2010 4:13 am
Sangban/ Kenkeni - me
djembe/ Sangban/ Kenkeni - Karim

Warm up w/ Balakulanya (sangban)
Rest of practice was spent working on Kawa. I've had some trouble with the Sg part and have been working at it. while Karim went through the dance with the dancers I spoke the part aloud. Once the dancers were ready for music I played Kenkeni and Karim played sangban and dununba.

at the very end of the session I played kenkeni part for dununba while dancers stepped to the down beats.
