DESCRIPTION

Jump into the exciting world of West African drumming with this collection of percussion pieces based on traditional rhythms and ensembles. The layering of short phrases found in West African percussion ensembles makes it possible for players with diverse levels of ability to perform together. Your group will have a challenging, successful experience unlike any other. This revision of Lynne Jessup's classic, Afro-Ensemble, provides new information on West African drumming, an updated list of resources, a new map, and completely reformatted charts and instructional text.
Each rhythm includes cultural context and history, references for additional information, and simplified notation of each rhythm, as well as CD tracks for each rhythm.
All Hands On! includes:

  • Seven progressive percussion pieces, written out in easy-to-follow chart form
  • Preliminary clapping exercises to facilitate playing of polyrhythms
  • How to use instruments you already have; what to buy if you have a budget
  • Basic drumming techniques
  • Stamped Adinkra symbols that can be used to decorate clothing or posters
  • Map of musical culture areas of Africa
