Description

At last, a drumming album for dancers! Drawing from the great drumming traditions of Africa, Cuba, and Haiti, Bakongo offers eight exciting compositions, each one a testament to the power and magic of ceremonial drum music.

Songs feature a variety of both hand and stick drumming styles, plus call-and-response vocals. Instruments include congas, barrel drums, talking drums, frame drums, gankogui and atoke (iron bells), shekere, and axatse (gourd rattles).

Bakongo is the only drumming album created exclusively for dance accompaniment. Led by Geoff Johns, the master drummer on Drum!
