Rythmes en stock ("Stock rhythms") - Volume 1 - Senegal - Book + CD
First volume of the "Rythmes en Stock" series, this book-and-CD launches a remarkable educational work by Lugdivine publishing. Its convenient format and design should make it an ideal companion to any demanding world-music enthusiast: its 40 pages are packed with useful information, history, organology, colour illustration, etc.
Divided in 4 chapters, the book first presents the traditional membranophones (drums) of Senegalese percussion music, and more particularly the master’s drum, the Sabar: its playing and tuning techniques are studied at length.
In its last part, the book focuses on 5 original pieces, composed by the N’Dadjé ensemble and directly inspired by traditional polyrhythms (nokass, koukou, assiko, etc.).
The book includes scores, lyrics (translated into French) and a carefully recorded CD with all studied rhythms, in several full or playback versions, depending on which instrument the learners wishes to practice.
Reading the scores does not require a wide knowledge of musical theory.
This inaugural work should give full satisfaction to beginning and advanced learners alike.
