Hot Off the Press: "Fundamental Djembe"
The album is a Play-Along instructional recording, which provides 24 Play-Along tracks and 3 performance tracks, to enable the beginning djembe drummer to learn the most essential West African rhythms.
"My drum students kept asking me to create a recording they could practice with at home. Eventually I came up with 24 tracks of stuff for them to work on. You just grab your drum, play the CD, and play along with it. Check out the first three tracks as teaching examples, but don''t miss track 26..." - CT
Cameron''s drum skills were honed during his nine year apprenticeship with master djembe player Abdoulaye Diakite. He accompanied Abdoulaye on three drum sabbaticals to Senegal, West Africa, to study the rhythms and culture of the Bamana ethnic group. Cameron now practices and performs with Baobab West African Drum Ensemble in Santa Barbara.
Tummel began studying hand drumming and hand percussion in 1990 with teachers Babatunde Olatunji, Arthur Hull and Don Davidson. He continues to study with dozens of drum teachers from Senegal, Guinea, Nigeria, the Congo, Cuba, Jamaica, Brazil, and the United States. To date, his studies have included fifteen years of academic and musical focus on the rhythms and cultures of West Africa.
Tummel has performed with Babatunde Olatunji, Abdoulaye Diakite, Baobab, Noah Churchill, and Small Village. Cameron is a published author, and builds many of his own drums. He has recorded with Arthur Hull, Noah Churchill, Margie Heart, and Quarkspace.
