Interest in hand drumming is on the rise, and this book/DVD pack will get beginning djembe players up and running with everything you need to know quickly, while still providing accurate and educationally correct information about the traditions and techniques of the djembe. It contains a brief historical overview, an introduction to basic use of the instrument, a complete approach to basic sound production techniques, and a complete series of traditional and contemporary rhythms that can be learned at your own pace. Each rhythm is clearly demonstrated on the DVD and transcribed in the book. Host Michael Wimberly is not only a world-traveling performer, but also a highly experienced educator, and his explanations are clear, concise, and fun.

"When my fiancé told me he wanted an acoustic guitar for his birthday, I had no idea how I was going to pull it off. However, this site made it very easy for me. It is very easy to find what you are looking for and the "related items" helped me pick out some accessories. I did experience a problem when it came to shipping. One of my items was reported as delivered by UPS. But when I contacted ActiveMusician, they sent out another stand right away, and it still arrived in time! I have nothing but good things to say about this site, and I have already started telling everyone about them!"
