Product Details


Mokhtar Samba’s powerful drumming can be heard throughout the world on recordings and tours with Salief Keita, Youssou N’Dour, Richard Bona, Joe Zawinul, Graham Haynes, Jean-Luc-Ponty, l’Orchestre National de Jazz (ONJ), and many others. Mokhtar’s Moroccan/Senegalese heritage, mixed with the jazz and Afro-fusion atmosphere of Paris, has created one of the most exciting drummers of our time. This book takes the student through several rhythms from all over the continent of Africa. Mokhtar breaks each rhythm down into movements, or exercises, that help the student develop the coordination and time feel necessary to play the various patterns that offer multiple permutations of these rhythms.
