Well, many have called and asked why such a heavy article as Magic & Ritual Abuse: Female Circumcision in Central and West Africa and how does this relate to women drummers? The answer must be given in social and cultural context. We wrote earlier on the history of djebe drumming in America, and that the djembe came to popularity in the early to mid 70’s. Many Africans began teaching traditional drumming in the United States and later established drum camps in Africa frequented by many American and European students.
Women in Africa have their own drums. There is not a lot of information available on all the various drums for women, so we are excited abut this clip. Here the women of the Baga People of Guinea sing and dance with the Matimbo; a drum akin to the dounnouns. I don’t know. Look like they kickin’ up some egun to me!
