I've been a hand percussionist for quite a few years now. My favorite instruments are the djembe, darbuka/doumbek, and udu. I own two authentic hand-made djembes, one darbuka, and one udu. Both of my djembes are made of hare' wood and have goatskin heads. I've learned many West African and Turkish rhythms and I love both cultures and their unique approach to percussion. I've taken lessons on traditional African rhythms from a few of West Africa's finest master drummers: Bolokada Conde, Abraham Kwabena Mensah, Mamady Keita, and Thione Diop. All of them offer classes here in the states to anyone who has an interest in learning about West African rhythms and culture. I have recently acquired an interest in learning how to play a set. I believe turbo is a drummer, but if anyone else in the community also plays a set, I'm looking for some good resources to help me get started. I have an old hand-me-down set I'll be setting up in our garage. Also, this thread does not have to be about me; if you have an affection for drumming, or even a slight interest, please share!
