About This Book

These rhythms are not to be taken as “traditional” or even as correctly notated. This is a compilation of my personal notes from the many drum classes that I have taken and people that I have drummed with. They are to be considered as a memory aid only. Due to the complexities and subtleties of some of these rhythms any attempt to confine them to the limits of paper can only result in a gross approximation of their true nature. If you desire to learn traditional cultural specific rhythms please find the nearest Master Drummer and attend their class. There you will learn traditional cultural specific rhythms as they are meant to be. Many thanks to all of the teachers that I have had the honor to experience on my drum journey. May your journey be magical. Enjoy!

“The spirit of the drum is something that you feel but cannot put your hands on, It does something to you from the inside out . . .
It hits people in so many different ways.
But the feeling is one that is satisfying and joyful.
It is a feeling that makes you say to yourself,
I’m glad to be alive today! I’m glad to be part of this world!”
—Babatunde Olatunji— 1927-2003
