Afro-Caribbean Grooves for Drumset by Jean-Philippe Fanfant.

Over 100 grooves from ten Caribbean nations, arranged for the drumset. Text in both English and French.

Includes audio download with audio examples of each rhythm.


The best anthology to date of Caribbean rhythms for today’s drummers. While the beats are authentic, there is a freshness with which Jean-Philippe plays and teaches these rhythms. His method takes the mystery out of playing many of these beats for non-Caribbean drummers. The modernity and universality of sound that he brings to this music will ensure its enduring legacy. Bravo!”
— Peter Erskine

I am fascinated by his modern and unique way of swingin’ all the Afro-Caribbean rhythms on the kit. This book is a modern treasure for lovers of Caribbean music.”
— Horacio “El Negro” Hernandez

This is the book we’ve been waiting for. Written by an absolute first-class musician, these grooves are organized, explained and played with passion, knowledge and swing! I look forward to using this book in my labs at Berklee.”
— Mark Walker
