While in Africa studying African drumming I had the wonderful opportunity to learn the djembe from master African drummers from Burkina Faso.
At first I was hesitant to learn Mendiani due to its complexity, but I thought I’ve come all this way to Africa why not give it a go. Luckily I had my video camera to catch all my one-on-one djembe lessons with the masters.
And now I want to share my lesson of Mendiani with you. In this video is master djembe drummer Adamane Keita.
Take your djembe playing to the next level
