We were lucky we met Sekou Soumah and his family rehearsing outside a drum shop, quickly becoming friends. We played together and invited him and his band back to our studio. The result is this sound pack full of raw musicianship and tradition.
Sekou and his family are originally from Conakry, Guinea, and had been living in Banjul, The Gambia, for about a year when we met them. They are all master drummers, musicians, and dancers. They have even performed in the prestigious Guinean ballet.
As with all Rhythm Paints sample packs, the majority of proceeds are returned to these talented regional musicians to support their craft.
