Lincoln Goines (electric and acoustic bassist) writes: "This app is an engaging and informative way to check out the original funk. A great tool for musicians, dancers, and all lovers of rhythm".
PercussionTutor will allow you to approach South American, Caribbean and West African music in a different way. This app offers you more than a simple play-along. We included standard notation, videos and specific claves. We also took the outmost care to capture the natural feeling of all those drumming traditions.
For the bata rhythms we even developed a random playback engine that will simulate an actual bata performance.
This app puts you in a live playing situation - just like you learned your mother language. You will sound more natural and more alive and you will awaken to new rhythmic possibilities. It's also a great tool for other musicians, dancers and performers who want to immerse themselves into centuries-old traditional languages.
