ANKÉ DJÉ ANKE BÉ
Book (136 pages) + 2 CDs
Djembe & Dounou music from Mali, West Africa - Volume 1
Abdoul Doumbia & Matthew Wirzbicki

This 136 page educational book features over 70 pages of musical notation and over two hours of djembe and dounou music on two audio CDs. Two additional volumes are planned in this series. The following rhythms are covered in volume 1: Birea Dansa, Dansa, Didadi, Domba (Sougou, Soli), Goï (Sounou), Jondon, Komo, Koredjouka, Lamba, Madan, Sandia, Sigandi (Maraka), and Woloso. Students can hear the djembe and dounou accompaniment parts for each rhythm as well as at least one djembe and one dounou solo by Abdoul Doumbia. A new system of rhythmic notation is presented in this book. The system is highly geometric and is intended to be understandable to all students. The accompaniments and solos are transcribed in the book and the transcriptions are time-coded. Within each solo transcription critical melodic phrases have been highlighted. A sample djembe transcription from the rhythm Domba can be viewed HERE. The companion audio track for this transcription can be heard
HERE (5MB). Please note that the sample transcription represents only a portion of the sample audio track. Another mp3 sample can be heard HERE (1.4MB).
