These parts for Kpanlogo are all taken from African Drum Rhythms Practice CD 4 (linked above). This very popular rhythm from Ghana is originally made for the instruments of the kpanlogo drum tradition. When played on the djembe it is of course totally out of context - nevertheless very enjoyable. There are numerous variations of all these converted parts, with the exception of the characteristic bell part.
