Mokhtar Samba’s powerful
drumming can be heard throughout the world on recordings and tours with
Salief Keita, Youssou N’Dour, Richard Bona, Joe Zawinul, Graham Haynes,
Jean-Luc-Ponty, l’Orchestre National de Jazz (ONJ), and many others.
Mokhtar’s Moroccan/Senegalese heritage, mixed with the jazz and
Afro-fusion atmosphere of Paris, has created one of the most exciting
drummers of our time. This book takes the student through several
rhythms from all over the continent of Africa. Mokhtar breaks each
rhythm down into movements, or exercises, that help the student develop
the coordination and time feel necessary to play the various patterns
that offer multiple permutations of these rhythms.
