ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This may be the biggest collection of drum circle rhythms available anywhere. There is over 2 hours of them. 101 rhythms from around the globe, all about a minute long each. (Actually there is 120 of them, but who's counting)
Check out a drum rhythm sample or two.

African, Bellydancing, Afro-Cuban, Native American, Middle Eastern, World, Blues, R&B, Soul, Funk, Rock and Roll & lots more. I started doing these drum circle rhythms on CDs & DVD some years ago. I like to hear a new rhythm for a while so I can get into it, so each rhythm is about a minute long. There's no talking on there, nothing else.

These rhythms from different cultures and countries were all put down on these 2 CD’s for you to enjoy. Try them out at the drum circle, at gigs, just jamming with friends, or wherever. Listen to them in your home sterio, car, make MP3's for your iPod. Try them out alone or with friends on your djembe, doumbek, ashiko, congas, or any kind of hand drum.

You can also pick up my 2 hour DVD of these rhythms at Filmbaby.com UPC Barcode 634479994692 You can see my hands in a close up shot of the djembe drum to see how the various notes, rhythms and sounds are being made on the video. There is a short sample of the DVD for you to check out on the site. It's $17.

The reason I did this project is sometimes you just can’t remember a new beat to start out with, or just want to pick up a few different beats to add to your collection. We all get out there now and then and think, “I used up all the rhythms I know, and can’t think of another one!” Well these 2 CD's should solve it, and keep you busy for quite some time. These are ideal reference material for drum circle facilitators, or someone who wants to get a drum circle started.

Some of these rhythms you will love, some you may not. Others may inspire you to change them around a little, and make them your own, depending on your own sense of drumming and style. Please keep in mind, this is not the only way to play these, it is just to give you an idea how I play them. Everyone's body and hands are different, every drum is different, so I expect you will change them around a little, and have a little fun with it. All 120 hand drum rhythms are played on a single djembe drum, all are numbered individual tracks. There are 62 hand drum rhythms on CD one, and 58 drum rhythms on CD Two.

I hope you enjoy these CD's. They are priced as low as possible. Having been a starving artist for most of my life, I always appreciated a good value for my money, especially in these difficult economic times. That's the idea behind my CD's. Thanks for helping to support independent artists, and music.

101 Drum Cicles
If you are looking to improve your skills, this is perfect. The rhythms are about 1 minute in length; plenty of time for you to "get it going" and practicing. Did not know what to expect when ordering, but it is exactly what I needed.
I am using it for our drumming circle "lead ins".
Highly recommended.

101 Drum Circle Rhythms
Excellent selection of 101 basic to complex hand drumming rhythms played on a single djembe for a average of about one minute per track.
Each track has 2 to 4 seconds of dead air at the end and this makes it difficult to loop or repeat a single track. The CD is very useful to learn new drumming patterns. Good value for the cost.
