I have heard part 1, but not quite as he plays it. The version I know (from Epizo Bangoura, among others) is:
Code: Select allEntry to the pattern during the call is on beat 3. I have also heard that same part played with a tone flam instead of a tone on beat 3.
b...b...t.t.tt.. 1...2...3...4... ........^.......
Part 2 is a traditional Kuku part, but only what he describes as the "variation". It starts on the 1 with the pair of tones.
The guy's technique is nothing short of terrible though. It's amazing that, apparently, he thinks he's qualified to teach djembe. He even lists Mamady as one of his teachers on his website. I guess that means that he attended a workshop of Mamady's once...
Part 3 is also a traditional Kuku part. You can enter on the 1 with the bass, or you can enter on the 4-and with the slap. (There doesn't seem to be any hard and fast rule as to which entry you use. In part, it depends on what kind of intro is played first--sometimes, the slap on the 4-and gets in the way and destroys the effect of the intro, in which case you come in with the bass on the 1.)
Part 4 is not a traditional Kuku part, at least not to my knowledge. Instead, that part is played with Kassa (among others).
I'm afraid that this is simply yet another video of someone who imparts incorrect information and can't hit a djembe to save his life...
