Bakari Sanyu

An exhilarating masterpiece of original African drumming music.
This CD is an exhilaring masterpiece of original African drumming music. This CD's intricate syncopated rhythms are immediately alluring, hypnotic, and captivating. This CD is ideally suited for any African American History, Kwanzaa, or Juneteenth Celebration, to create and convey a distinguished cultural flavor.


i love the sound of the African rhythms
It was exactly what i was looking for. Passionately played African rhythms; i can't keep still when i am listening to it. As a novice djembe player, it is fun picking out rhythms. The singing is beautiful...thank you for sharing your culture
