CEX08 Ammasu Akapoma Group: Ammasu - Analytical Drumming

Release date october 16, 2007

This album is mostly meant for students and musicians who want to try to find out how a typical west aftrican drumming ensemble is put together. It features "analytical" recordings of the various drum pieces that the Ammasu Akapoma Group is playing. That means that you will hear the regulative bell of each piece together with the various drums one by one and in the end of each piece all together.

Texts and photos will also be put up on the Country & Eastern site showing the making of the Atumpan drums, portraits and life in the village.
