In this lesson Michael gives you complete instructions on how to play your djembe. He begins with how to hold the drum, and then illustrates how to hit properly so your drum will make the basic slap, tone, and bass sounds clearly, so your drum will “speak”. He covers some of the basic West African hand patterns, so you’ll be able to play along with others in an ensemble situation. Practice this lesson and you’ll be well on your way to having fun with your djembe!
