Master drummer, Jim Donovan, teaches us how to play the basic strokes on the West African Djembe drum. There are three basic sounds played on the djembe; the bass tone, the open tone and the slap tone. Jim also demonstrates how to produce a flam technique, which is two notes played very close together. Check out more from Jim at his website.
