Serious Groove at MusiCamp 2013’s West African Drumming Week

This slightly edited video is from our 2013 week-end performance of the children-composed rhythm “Timbaraba.”

Although it is difficult to see, at the back left are 3 double headed drums known as dunun. The dunun play a complex interlocking rhythm upon which the djembes play another rhythm or solo.

NOTE: Because the speakers of computers and portable devices aren’t designed to capture the bass, to hear the dunun pattern you need to listen to this video with headphones or good speakers.
