This is one of my favorite tunes here, you can hear them playing this in Leimert Park a lot at the #drumcircle in #Crenshaw out in #California. Everyday we learning, tryna perfect ourselves. So…..I’ve been playing duns and djembe since before I can remember. I grew up around traditional Afrikan drum & dance so naturally my pops got me a small djembe and also had me playing the duns at events. I never really picked up a lot of the names of the rhythms but I can play the tune once I hear it. Learning about the world, history & how we have been separated from our culture to accept the one that has been given to us has watered my tree of appreciation for how I’ve been raised around the tradition. In the current I’m putting forth a effort to memorize the names to the rhythms as well as other rhythms that are new to me in order to preserve & pass down the culture.
