Sabar Drum Language brings you the raw, intense, and ancient drumming of the sabar from Senegal and The Gambia.
Performed by Laye Ndiaye, who has been playing the sabar drums since his youth in Senegal. Drumming has been a long-standing tradition in his family for generations and we were lucky enough to have lessons from him too. He performs on a mbalax, similar to the djembe, except played with a hand and stick. In addition, he also performs with a thiol, a thin goblet drum also played with one hand and one stick.
The rhythms found in this pack all stem from various songs performed in Laye’s community, dating back hundreds of years.
As with all Rhythm Paints sample packs, the majority of proceeds are returned to these talented regional musicians to support their craft.
