Djembe - Africa - Iceland - diferent - the same.

It was very interesting for me, a guy from Iceland to read this book, for Dialo's life in Africa was so totaly different from growing up here in Iceland, but what we do have in common though is a deep love and respect for drumming, music and the power of both to heal. I would like to add, that though there is a big difference on the surface it is interesting to see how similar humans are underneath the surface.

I could recommend this book for all who have interest in traditional African music and culture, and also for all those who play the Djembe this book is a must.

For those of you who are studying drumming and/or rhythms I also recomend Sule Greg Vilson's "The drummers path", Reinhard Flatichler's "The forgotten power of rhythm", And "A rhytmmic vocbulary" by Alan Dworsky.
