I took an African Drumming class a few semesters ago and figured I'd revisit and rework the drum sequence I did as my final project. Credit to my classmate Elliot for some of the rad Djembe flems.

Nice drumming! Is there any sites to maybe self learn djembe / other african percussion stuff?

It'd've been nice if the flute was a steel drum. I know it's not really fitting the Africa theme, but still.

Put a big smile on my face, thanks! smile

Very nice drumming. The accompaniment is quite pleasant and happy as well.

Thanks man! Hmmm I'm not sure. I took the class at uni; I wouldn't even know where to find a djembe on my own, haha.

Ohhhhh that would have been such a good idea. I'm not really concerned with the theme though, let's be real -- it's not like 8bit sounds have anything to do with Africa either. ;p

Yo, if you replaced that panflute instrument with the one from the N64 soundfont and slapped a synth on this, it would be aesthetic as hell.  Just a thought.

Sick beats, tho.
