Thomas Roebers: Djembe Drummers – Rhythm and Life

This is one of the best videos I have ever seen on youTube. I was looking for a video to share on Mali Djembe drummers; this puts the drums and the drumming all in context. Thomas Roebers does an amazing job of stitching it all together, and we get to watch that tree from selection, to first cuts with the ax, through roughing, hollowing and covering with a skin . . . watch for it, interspersed with rhythmic aspects of village life.

Well done, Thomas Roebers!
