In this third volume in his bestselling series, Al Dworsky shows you how to play funky West African djembe grooves on bongos. Each pattern is taught step-by-step, using a player's eye view and a side view, at normal speed and in slow motion. The grooves fit with all kinds of music, as you'll see when Al plays them with his brother Rich Dworsky, the piano player on public radio's A Prairie Home Companion. And you'll be able to play along, because Al only plays exactly what he's shown you how to play in the lessons. To show you how the grooves work in a more traditional context, Al is joined by master drummer Fode Seydou Bangoura on djembe. The DVD is about an hour long and includes a PDF file with simple charts of all the patterns. Alan Dworsky is the creator of over 20 bestselling and award-winning books and videos for hand drummers and other musicians, including the DVDs Gentle Djembe for Beginners, Cajon Grooves for Beginners, and Bongo Grooves for Beginners. His books A Rhythmic Vocabulary and Conga Drumming have each won the DRUM Magazine Readers' Poll as Best Instructional Book.
