How to Play World-Beat Rhythms with Just Your Body and Your Buddy
By Alan Dworsky and Betty Sansby
Book and CD
Upper elementary and up
You don't need a drum to be a drummer - this book will help you turn drum rhythms into body rhythms to step, clap, and slap with a buddy. Learn how to slap traditional rhythms from West Africa and the Caribbean: Kuku from Guinea, Sunguru Bani from Mali, Kpegisu from Ghana, Bomba from Puerto Rico, and Conga from Cuba. Hear how every pattern sounds on the slap-along CD that comes with the book. For use with pairs or in group, indoors or out, at home or at school. A great hands-on experience of world rhythms even if you don't have instruments available!
Contents: What Is Slap Happy, The Charts & the Moves, The Rhythms (Kuku, Bomba, Conga, Sunguru Bani, Kpegisu, The One-Bar Clave), Sources for Further Study, Blank Charts.
