It takes an effort for westerners to grasp the way the different drums in African percussion pieces interact melodically as well as rhythmically. That's meant to be a come-on for this very well recorded (in Mali) CD by the group "Rhythms of Mali" which features some wonderful drumming (2 djembes, bass drum and dunun) but absolutely no notes. Especially recommended for fans of Cuban music.
