World Rhythms

The drumset can play any style of music. All around the world we found various percussion instruments. The drumset can imitate the sound of these instruments, the drummer can play traditional rhythms.
In this lesson I give you easy versions of well known rhythms from Cuba, Brazil and West Indies.

You can also practise lesson #38, Kurubi a rhythm from West Africa.

You may want to learn more about the relationship between the drumset and rhythms from all around the world, so you could be interested in Le Voyage du Tambour.
