African Drum Suite with Ismael, Adonis & Gman


The rhythms of the drum have been a staple of the Jake Feinberg Show. It started with Cal Tjader and his percussive vibes with Armando Peraza on Congo drums, it continued with Candido who grew up in Cuba playing on condensed milk cans to FDM and The AACM whose rhythmic performances told the stories of modern day oppression in this country while harkening back to the middle islands when slaves picked sugar cane and chanted and sang and danced to the rhythms of the drum.

The drums are played in patterns, propulsive waves of polyrhythms that can embolden people or leave them apoplectic. It's a dialogue or a language unto itself. Unknown to European colonists who were so threatened by the drum circles in Congo Square that they sold their land to the colonists in the Louisiana Purchase.

To find younger cats who were raised by the masters of the drums is challenging especially in Tucson. But today we will be treated to Drums of Passion in the same vein as babatunje Olatunje, Kwasi Badu, Tony Allen, Mongo Santamaria and Big Black.
