Video #1 - Mandinka drumming from Gambia

Here's a video of my teachers Jalamang Camara (sabaro, left on screen) and Mamady Danfa (kutiriba, back right on screen) playing at a women's recreational celebration in Brikama, Gambia last weekend. They're playing a sequence of introductory rhythms to the celebration, so the women know to convene in a large circle to start the singing, dancing, an drumming. Excuse the fairly substantial delay, but hey, at least it works.
