In Africa, drums hold a deeper, symbolic and historical significance. They herald political and social events attending ceremonies of birth, death and marriage. They spark courtships, they herald home-coming and going and they accompany religious rites and rituals, calling up ancestral spirits. Drums are treasured assets of any African community; their vibrant and rhythmic sounds stirring up emotions and helping to carry on noble traditions, inspiring new generations to keep a sense of belonging, discovery and pride. Modern african drums and drumming. A beat is the first thing we hear in life. I am an Artist from Tanzania in East Africa.
Drums used in African traditional music include talking drums, bougarabou and djembe in West Africa, water drums in Central and West Africa, and the different types of ngoma drums (or engoma) in Central and Southern Africa. Other percussion instruments include many rattles and shakers, such as the kosika (kashaka), rain stick, bells and wood sticks. Also, Africa has lots of other types of drums, and lots of flutes, and lots of stringed and wind instruments. The playing of polyrhythms is one of the most universal characteristics of Sub-Sarahan music, in contrast to polyphony in Western music

1. Taiko Drums of Japan. I have played West African percussion, and Samba/Batucada for over 12 years, and the tracks on this album that say they are djembe/west african or samba, are definitely not. The Surdo beat is incorrect in Samba, the djembe rhythms are wrong and the djembes tuned way lower than actual. This appears to be drum circle hippies interpretations of world rhythms rather than the actual thing (which is cool if that is the intention, as the beats are still cool - just not authentic).
