A GOOD BOOK TO LEARN THE BASIC PRINCIPLES OF DRUMMING.

  • Sep 19, 1999

I had been playing the piano for many years and wanted to learn more about rhythms and I picked up this book in a local bookstore and within a year I had started to learn to play African rhythms on the Djembe and Djun Djun. This book really opened my eyes to the beauty and complexity of traditional African rhythms and how they influenced the rhythms of both North and Latin America.

The book does not teach any rhythms but teaches all the basic principles af playing the drum and the mental/spiritual aspect of it.

Highly inspirational and Higly recomended.

Two other good books about the philosophical aspect of drumming are Diallo's "The Healing Drum" and Reinhard Flatischler's "The Forgotten Power Of Rhythm;Taketina".

And a good book who teaches a lot of rhythms is "A Rhythmic vocabulary" by Alan Dworsky"
