The Sabar Drum (10/15/09)

October 24, 2009

This was a powerful presentation of the Sabar drum. Moustapha Faye, Aziz Faye and Malick Ngom presented the sabar drum family and the many voices of each of the sabar drums – nder, cól, mbëng-mbëng and tunguné. They also demonstrated the wide range of applications of the sabar drum by playing rhythms and bakks in both traditional and modern styles.

Moustapha Faye and Malick Ngom demonstrate the sabar drum and its rhythms to Suffolk University.
