West African rhythms in a western notation format
Western music notation makes the scores suitable for all kinds of instruments and for educational purposes.
We took special care when designing the book to create a great reading experience: large scores, high contrast, and easy to find instrument icons. The proposed drum set, consisting of djembes and dunduns, is pictured in the intended setup for the specific rhythm at hand.
Use it to compose your own music
Arafan Touré created compositions that can be used in many music styles. Although his melodies were composed for djembe and dundun, they may be played with other instruments such as horns, guitars or keyboards.
