The fascination of the Djembé is the discovery of one's own personality.

Mamady Keïta and Uschi Billmeier explain the ethnical meaning of approximately 60 traditional rhythms of the Malinké, in addition to a selection of modern ones.

At the same time they give practical advice for teaching and learning these rhythms with the help of a notation, that is as ingenious as it is simple.
