These parts for Basikolo are all taken from African Drum Rhythms Practice CD 5, except the last bass part variation. Many of them are very similar to well known parts for Tiriba, Doudoumba etc. The last bass part is the same as the first with a few more doundoun notes added. It is much easier to play with two sticks than one at a high tempo, even though the bell part is very supportive. This rhythm was originally taught to me by Ousmane Sylla from Guinea.
