Djembefola, by Daniel Genton - Book + CD
Langues : French, English
Daniel Genton is among the French percussionists whose main interest lies in African percussions. The author of several tutors, he proposes in this one, a number of rhythmical exercises which correspond to about 20 traditional rhythms from Senegal, Guinea and Mali, with the help of the Western mode of transcription.
Each rhythm is studied along with its dunun (bass drum) accompaniment. This work is precious for two main reasons: it offers a high-quality transcription of an oral-based musical heritage but it also gives some nice recordings of this polyrhythmic repertoire on the CD.
The "fun section" of the book introduces a number of small pieces for the sake of practice, while the "solo phrases" section gives extra material aimed at advanced players.
The CD gives its whole value to this work, as its rich content suits any player, from beginners to the most advanced.
