RESOURCE MATERIALS REVIEWS SECTION
This section assembles reviews written primarily by the members of the Jembe-list and is intended to be a guide to the different resource materials available to hand drummers. While it concentrates on the djembe/dunun tradition of the Mande region of West Africa, it also includes reviews of materials dealing with other drum traditions in Africa and in the rest of the world. We have also included a general section on African music and culture in order to introduce drummers to the wealth and diversity of the music and cultures of this continent. The Favorites Lists section is intended to provide overviews of particular areas. Finally, the Drum Camps and Institutes section will provide information on intensive instructional workshops.
This collection of reviews is a work in progress and there are still many gaps. However, our goal is to include all relevant material, so if you notice any omissions, please consider writing a review. For more information and for any comments or suggestions, please write Tom Daddesio (firstname.lastname@example.org).
