In Taylor's first interactive instructional DVD, you will find a wealth of information and practice sessions that will provide hours and hours of technique building exercises.  Included are djembe technique explanation and exercises, practice rhythms, ensembles that accompany you (yes, you can isolate all the voices to practice all the orchestra parts!), and interviews with Taylor.  All skill levels! One of the most creative and helpful instructional DVD's on the market today for building your djembe technique.  This DVD allows you to play along with members of the Mande Djembe Orchestra and learn all the parts to nine different traditional rhythms.  Isolate individual parts, or groups of instruments and study all the members of the orchestra.  Or, solo over all the accompaniment.  The repetition provided by the top quality recordings will allow to "learn again, again." This is the one live concert DVD you must have in your library - Mamady Keïta and his Group, SEWA KAN perform live at the 15th Annual Couleur Café Festival in Brussels in 2004.  Tremendous high energy performances and specials guests Baba Sissoko, Bruno Genero, Seckou Keïta an Mohamet Sissoko.
