CD Reviews

Excellent Tribal Singing and Drums from Guinnea
Michael | Placerville, CA USA | 09/24/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Mamady Kieta is one of the living masters of djembe. If you like pure drumming, please refer to my review for Mamady's "African Drums." If you want to get caught up into the tribal experience, this CD has the group singing, log drums, kplango drums, djun djuns, shakeres, and dondo drums. Unfortunately, it isn't the same as being there and voluntarily or not being drawn into communal dancing, singing and drumming. To simply say the djembe is a healing drum misses the meaning of healing within a village. It is an extended family. Each life is dependent on the others. Bad feelings toward others or curses toward each other must be healed. These feelings usually do not survive this type of group experience. At the end of a good hunt or harvest, these gatherings were known to continue for days. Does it work? Try it! Cheaper than therapy. Definitely a heck of a lot more fun than therapy."
