ABOUT MORHYTHM DJEMBE/DUNUN PLAY ALONG
MoRhythm Beginning African Drumming Play Along App is the brain-child of world-renowned percussionist Monette Marino. Designed to provide you with a platform to practice individual drum parts on your real drums while listening to the other instruments of the djembe orchestra, all with the convenience of your smartphone or tablet.
Heres how it works:
First, select the rhythm you want to practice. Then select the instruments you would like to play accompany you while you practice. Select the tempo and then press Play. You will hear the djembe signal at the start of each rhythm and then you can begin playing your drum along to the instruments you have selected.
This App contains audio only, however there are 50 videos available (10 rhythms times 5 drums each) as In-App purchases if you would like to see the movement and position of the hands on the drums.
Play Along increases your listening & playing skills and will help you to play in sync with other instruments of the djembe orchestra, enhancing your understanding of how all the parts fit together.
African rhythms for Beginning Content included are: Balakulandjan, Denedon, Djole, Fe, Kuku, Moribayassa, Soliwulen, Konden, Soli (Fast), and Toro.
Once you have downloaded the app, you may add intermediate and advanced levels of rhythms as in-app purchases.
