I agree. It's in time, your sounds are great and you play some nice phrases.

Hey everyone!

Such a cool & inspiring post.
My name is Roni Parnass and I'm an Israeli Djembefolette! I also play other percussion instruments - cajon, congas, bongos, darbuka, balafon and more. Yet West African drumming has by far been my biggest musical passion. There's a nice, small growing community of West African music in israel, with masters coming in 2-3 times a year, West African Drum & Dance groups and more. I've been playing djembe for 15 years now. I have two groups of my own - Perfusion -
https://www.facebook.com/PerfusionEnsemble- an African / Middle Eastern inspired dance & music ensemble, and Malaika - https://www.facebook.com/malaikatrio - an all-women's percussion trio.

Here's a few little snippets of my djembe playing. Would love you hear what you think.

Yeaaaa very cool!
No I actually started with the Djembe and have been playing it for 15 years now. I did get into a kind of conga rhythm and pattern in this solo.. But Djembe is my biggest love :-)

Sorry, I don't have names. Their website hasn't been updated in a long time. They were supposed to have come to Australia last year, but I don't believe they did. At least, I didn't hear anything :(
