Kuku - The Most Popular Rhythm
Kuku is a traditional West African rhythm, and probably the most popular of all the rhythms taught around the world today. If you know these basic parts, it will usually be enough to get you into any drum circle, anywhere. They are also a great way to practice your three sounds, which are crucial to growing as a drummer.
Lessons: I break down each part, hit by hit. Then I play each one fast, and slow, so you can practice at any level with me. And if you want to really pursue the West African tradition of drumming, then you can follow up by taking lessons from your local Master Drummer, or sign up at Rhythm Reference, which I created with Fara Tolno many years ago.
So happy to share this with you! Drum and Enjoy!
