Can you play that mendiani with the crazy micro timing thing... It's almost like a warped record... That reminds me of a time I was in Dakar and these dudes rolled up playing electric armadillo guitars through car stereo amplifiers and they were playing in unison but it sounded like a record with a skip in it...I couldn't stop laughing...it must have been the malaria medication... :lol:

Oh, I can't wait to learn the Jeli dunun parts for all the rhythms I know!

Right now I am working on Dansa. I learned the basic riff and a couple of solo bits. It is a wonderful challenge for this djembe girl. I am loving it.

I am working without the bell for the time being... but at some point want to get one and start playing that, too.

I wish Providence was closer, because

1. I want a jeli dunun + bell

2. I want to take lessons!

No Malians anywhere near here, I'm afraid... (Well, maybe there are, but they're not teaching drums/bala/ngoni/whatever.)

Rachel, Dansa is one of my favorites, too. :dundun:

That's a great one... tons of dunun licks for Dansa, Suku (Soli), Sunu, Tansole, Madan. The jembe playing is pretty sick, too.

Here's a link to order it:

Thanks for the rec - that Ibrahima Sarr CD that I mentioned to you off-list (on KSK) is good for this, too.

I think you need to get Sidy to convince some of his peeps to come here and teach... they could probably get a lot of students on the Eastern Seaboard in general, NE and the Mid-Atlantic states more specifically... RI is just *bit* too far for me to swing up for a weekend, you know? (And much as I like southern NE, I don't plan on moving there anytime soon. ;))

Just remember - it's the "good" kind of crazy! :D

Right now mine is a toss up between bolokonodon and Mfakaba dundun and sangbahn. Also a couple I learned in Guinea called kassa toady and bando fadima. Sorry if I am completely butchering some phonetic spelling of the rhythms.
