Most drummers have an understanding of two of the three major African-derived rhythmic traditions: Cuban and Brazilian. Vodou Drumset has been designed by authors Armstrong and Knepper to introduce the third influential African-derived tradition to the drumset player's repertoire. Afro-Haitian rhythms (including traditional styles, such as Ibo, Nago and Vanvalou) represent an enormously rich, but often neglected tradition that will add a new, nearly endless range of possibilities to the store of techniques and materials available to a creative modern drummer. This book, which includes a play-along CD, contains a host of materials that will be useful to drumset players, drum loop designers, the aspiring ethomusicologist and other persons curious about the unusual varieties of rhythmic practice and drum techniques.
