Looking for solo ideas

I am doing a solo at a cabaret. I would like to come on stage doing solo improvisation similar to the ending on Sikko Djole - Percussions de Guinee Cd - there is a single percussionist playing slaps and tones.

I'd appreciate it if anyone can post a link(s) to similar examples but on video.

Thanks for any ideas.

Have a look through DSD's demo videos: https://www.youtube.com/user/DrumSkullDrums/videos

There are tons of similar examples in there, particularly the ones demoed by Ibou Ngom.

Good one. I have seen others at DSD before, but the one by Ibou Ngom fits the bill. Thanks.

If you scroll through the list, he's done at least a half dozen of them. Quite a few feature those echauffement rolls.
