"Mandinka rhythms" - Vol 3, by Mamady Keita - DVD
Languages: French, English, German, Spanish, Japanese
Shared out to three levels of study, the DVD series "Guinée : les rythmes du mandeng" is aimed at beginners (Vol 1), intermediate (Vol 2) and advanced (Vol 3) learners
This tool was designed by the author to pursue the pedagogical approach he has developped in the last years through dozens of courses, workshops and masterclasses throughout the world. The series is not "for initiates only" and beginners will be given a lot of practical, useful information, while more advanced players will find plenty of food for thought in it, and will enjoy the quality of audio and video recordings.
With 5 available languages, Mamady Keïta and his ensemble Sewa Kan lead the learner into the study of 7 different rhythms in each volume, introducing musical and cult-related traditions from various ethnic groups: Malinke, Kasonke, Temne, Susu, Baga and Manian.
A "live show" section then offers a real speed demonstration of all studied rhythms.
A very useful piece of learning material, this 3-volume set of DVDs is the optimal tool for amateurs and professionals alike. Besides, its oral, intuitive approach make it accessible to everyone.
Djembé players, especially, will enjoy the concept, as it guarantees hours of efficient home practice.
