Other west African instruments, like balafon, ngoni etc.

the tama and tantango parts are trad, being the trad khassonke instruments. the djembe parts are based on those.

Awesome. I hope to study tama when I go to bamako in January. I will ask to work on some of the songs I know. Very cool.

Where can I find more instructional videos for tama?

Is there any method for writing down tama pieces (like BTS method for djembe rhytms)?

The link is no longer available :? . Has anybody got this parts notated or movie downloaded? Or other rhythms?

I'm trying to notate Mali tama parts basing on YT movies and recordings, e.g. Maraka - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MniNqWSKRr4 and song of S.P. Diabate - Maraca Foly

But in lots of movies it's difficult to hear tama, because it's deafened by djembes ;)
