Rwandan music

I was browsing videos on You tube the other day and I stumbled across an ingoma percussion video. It was so beautifully executed, I have to share it with you guys. The complicity among the drummers, the speed they reach at times, they really make it look easy. I know it’s not, for having attended an Ingoma workshop once in Brussels. The position of the drummer’s feet, waist, arms, hands, shoulders and head are all part of the training. The guys in this video are just amazing. It’s like watching a kata performed by blackbelts.  Enjoy.
