AllMusic Review by

The Buda label has long been a reliable source for traditional international music, and Djembe, Vol. 3 is no exception. The djembe is an hourglass-shaped drum used throughout much of sub-saharan Africa. Although other instruments are present on a few tracks (flute on "Antala," violin on "Tambour d'Oviole," and voice on "Bate Palmas Luana"), the focus here is squarely on the djembe. The rich and varied rhythms represented would benefit any student of percussion.
