I love when my interests dovetail into each other. I want to learn to play hand drums. I even have a doumbek that I am almost capable of a few rhythms on. Now, I am trying capoeira and one of the musical instruments they use is a hand drum. Time to learn a little capoeira drumming. I translated the rhythm they were playing tonight into something I can understand (te-ka doum tek rest, repeat). A little practice and I’m sure I can play the base rhythm while someone else embellishes and that is the first step.
