Learn about the wonderfully rich music which is derived from the fusion of the cultures of West-Africa, Europe, and the indigenous Indian cultures of the Caribbean region with this book/CD pack. Most of the rhythms presented here have evolved from their original multiple percussion origins, and have been applied to the drumset. For each style sample or exercise, the CD contains a performance demo and then a version without the drums for you to play-along. If you want to be a well-rounded, well trained musician, this publication provides the information and exercises that will give you a strong musical foundation in these important genres.
