Babara Bangoura with a very interesting dual djembe combo here. Crazy co-ordination.

That's very cool, the lower djembe sounds almost bougarabou-ish.
I presume the idea is to post videos of different djembe kans here?

I was looking through old videos on this site and I found one of Famoudou doing a double drum djembe kan


So, here's another savage video

And another...
I haven't seen many videos of Thomas Gueï around. I wanted to do a class with him in Paris earlier this year but unfortunately missed it.

the new zoumana djembekan is awesome. He's very good on djembekan.
I'm noticing that in Burkina there is something of a tradition on djembekan or appel de djembé, as you like it.

Most of the djembekans I see are somehow a mere display of soloing and phrasing skills. Almost as if there was no speech between each "lick". But it seems that in Burkina Faso there is a djembekan "school".
If you look at Zoumana's Djembekan, there aren't too elaborate phrases and roles, it seems to be more of a matter of progression in speech. A lot of precision in sound, of course.
BTW, first time I've seen Zoumana on the tonpalo slap. Nice.

Of course that to me, there is no one like Adama Dramé. He's one other thing, on djembekan, or whatever you call his solo work.

Here is a long djembe solo on a low tuned djembe. Simply amazing. He never stops surprising me, as much as I know his work over time.

Watch his hand technique

Adama is probably my favorite out of all the "names." His playing is very, very musical (melodic), and I love how he incorporates many different techniques in order to pull all kinds of sounds from the skin.

david, in the solo that you linked to, there is a lot of influence from Persian classical drumming. The goblet-shaped drum that's played in that music is called the zarb or tombak. You can pull up some Youtube vids of some of the better players (like Djamchid Chemirami and his sons Keyvan and Bijan, who live in France) and compare. Keyvan has played and recorded quite a bit with djembe and bala players, and I think everyone comes out of those situations with new ideas and techniques.

Thanks for posting, Michi!

Gosh, Paddy, you're good. Tell us, please, how you got that far, since when do you play the djembe, did you do any drums before that, how often have you been in Africa etc.pp.
