West African Drumming: Book 1, by Mokhtar Samba, is an exploration of the essence of West African Rhythms. Featuring in-depth looks at Clave Sabar, Clave Tibois, and “Lazy Triplets” (a term invented by Mokhtar), as well as exercises for each to develop your feel for these traditional patterns.

Also included are five play-along tracks that cover each of these approaches. Each play-along includes audio with, and without drums, so you can listen, learn, and try your own grooves.

Divided into 2 volumes, this drum book is one of a kind, it offers the student real compositions that have pedagogic values with their subtleties and variations of rhythm.

Drummer, percussionist, composer, Mokhtar Samba is renowned for his collaboration with major artists such as Salif Keïta, Youssou NʼDour, Carlinhos Brown, Joe Zawinul, Carlos Santana, Jaco Pastorius, Pitura Fresca, Jean Luc Ponty, Manu Dibango and Alpha Blondy…

His cross-culture origins (a Moroccan mother and a Senegalese father), make Mokhtar Samba the right person when it comes to passing on the essence of West African rhythms.
