tracks Here are the basic drum parts for Moribayassa. Listen well to learn, and then try playing along! Try using a good sound system or headphones to hear all the layers.
I had the good fortune to learn Moribayassa with Mamady Keïta and his dununba (bass drum) player, Cece Koly. It is one of my favourite rhythms!
Down below the audio are written notes (transcriptions) with all of the rhythm parts played.
