Does anyone know of a rhythm called Solo?

Postby djembefeeling » Sat Oct 08, 2016 4:39 am

My girlfriend is taking part in a three year workshop thing of Billy Konate. They have to prepare the duns for a rhythm called Solo. At first I thought it is a typo and they meant Soro. But this seems not to be the case. It is not that different for it is also in the typical Kassa structure, but it is not the same rhythm.

Does anybody have more information about that rhythm like variations and solo patterns for Solo?

This rhythm is also in the book 'Maninka Foli Karan', Incl. chauffements, solos etc.
Buy it from Billy himselfs.

You can find the following rhythms in the book:

Kawa
Soliba
Bilakoro Dunun
Soliboba
Djaa
Solo (a Kassa Rhythm and sounds a little bit like Toro for me)
Sobonikun

Sounds good. Hadn't heard of that book. I'm glad to see it has dunun variations and songs. I have found some books/dvd's a bit too djembe focused and not giving the full picture.
Please give a review

o.k., here a little review: basically the book has all you will learn at a typical Famoudou or Billy workshop - up to 3 variations for dangban and dundun with chauffpattern, 4-5 djembesolopattern plus an intro/outro and a song. Some information about the rhythm and its ocasion in German/English. rhythms as you can see above.

This morning I was driving and listening to "Rhythmen der Malinke", and I realized that the "Solo" song is sung on track#8 "Kassa"!

The song, yes. But the rhythm in the book is probably a modern invention. In the Rhythmen der Malinke track they have the downbeat kenkeni, dundunba is different too and sangban is difficult to hear.
