How many Albums - top 5

Postby Djembe-nerd » Sat Oct 23, 2010 12:43 am

My collection is approaching 50 now, and many of you will have many more. So lets see what the collection really should be ;-) and what are the top 5 djembe masters and their best one
Here is mine:

Collection : 50 albums
Top 5 :
Lart de djembe, Soungalu C
Percussion Et chant Malinke, Famoudou K
Nankama : Mamady K
Percussion Mandingue 2 ; Adama D
Fakoly : Fode Bangoura
(There are several more at the 5th place, but I write only 5 per rule)

Well not quite, here we might see what is the preference of all contributers when it comes to choose the top 5, and we will know how many we are missing in our collection ;-) top 5 from any contributer needs to be in the collection.

How can I get a copy of L'art de Djembe? There don't seem to be any around even in my usual used and rare music purveyors.

Not counting instructional stuff, my collection is standing at 116 CDs right now. My favourites:
  • Famoudou Konaté, "Rhythmen Der Malinke"
  • Baba Touré, "Daakan"
  • Fodé Seydou Bangoura, "Fakoly 1"
  • Mamady Keïta, "Mögöbalu"
  • Aruna Sidibe And Brulye Doumbia, "Mali Drums: Old Masters"
Michi.

here's mine for today:

Famoudou Konate - rhythm der malinke. i particularly like the solis, bundiani and of course the dununba rhythms.

Mamady Keita - Mogobalu. all the masters take part in this one: fadouba, famoudou, daouda, sekou konate, bakahly camara, mamady mansare etc etc. kawa and soko are great with fadouba...these were the first widely circulated recordings of Fadouba playing djembe. MK really gets out there on the Maraka. the soli des manian and ngoron are hot too.

Mansa Camio et Sofoli - An bada Sofoli. the dunun playing on this album is what kills it for me. traditional roots dununba playing from heart of dununba country. this recording probably has the most depth for dununba rhythms than any other out there.

Rainer Polack's stuff - Mali Tradition 1/2, Bamako Foli, Donkili. Old school Mali duet and ensemble playing at it's finest

Fode Seydou Bangoura - Fakoly. super melodic album overall with crazy chops and clean sound. great vox and bala playing.

if i answer this tomorrow, you may get 5 totally different albums.

Bubudi,
I'm in Portland and Rhthym Traders is my new weekend hangout. I've been there every Saturday and Sunday for the past month for lessons with Clifford Kouffman and Caton, usually dropping signifant coin on CDs, DVDs, and Books feeding my new-found hunger for djembe stuff. I bought the Soungalo live CD there, but the D'Art CD is out of print and they don't have a copy.

Any other suggestions? I've tried Everyday Music, Ebay, Amazon, Librio, and Google with no success. I've found a few foreign sites that offer MP3 downloads, but I'm a bit wary of them.

By the way my top 4 favorites at the moment are Mamady's Afo, Soungaly's Live album, Adama Drame' Percussions Mandigues, and Yoruba Drums from Benin, West Africa.

Dugafola,
Thanks for the tip. I'm new to drumming and the djembe, so I'm drinking from a firehose at this point. (And having a ball!)

Is Derrell the guy in Portland that has the TTM certificate?

indeed. he's a good buddy of mine. and he's got the diploma and certificate. not sure if he's teaching drums at this point. i know his dance class is going strong.

PM me your email and i'll make sure he gets it to add it to his update list.
