I started on a djembe two weeks ago after i organised a drumming incursion at my school to support my art programme on African culture. The kids loved and i only had a quick go but it was true love immediately.
So now i want to run a programme for the kids which means ive gotta learn. ive been workin hard and the mrs (piano player) is impressed
Im a few weeks away from taking advantage of the Kuku rythms as im still working on some basic patterns but the way the video is set to repeat and the notation is FANTASTIC and ive come away confident rather than hesitant and extreamly pleased that i will have an African rythem to learn.
Ive spent quite a bit of time searching online for quality instruction ...now i can spend more time playing
I will have an in person teacher but they are located a 90 minute drive away so that part is still in planning...but in the mean time
big big thanks
ps. where does Kuku come from?
Forget that...i just went back and read the history
