Another 16 performances by the Master Drummers of Dagbon troupe from Northern Ghana. Once more, the ensemble turns their drumming into a hypnotic, enchanting rhythm ceremony, creating waves of shimmering, exploding beats, accents and patterns. What's so impressive about the Master Drummers, besides their obvious abilities, is the way melodic and harmonic developments emerge from what seems like an obsession with rhythm

Alhaji Ibrahim Abdulai & the Master Drummers of Dagbon. Westerners have become increasingly aware of the African rhythmic traditions that are the foundation of much of today’s popular music. John Miller Chernoff’s compelling recordings of the drumming of the Dagbamba people of West Africa, presented on this album (and its companion, Rounder 5046), succeed not only as a document of a traditional musical culture, but as a breathtaking musical experience. Label: Rounder Records.

I have had Master Drummers Of Dagbon Volume 2 for ten years or so, and Volume 1 for far shorter a time. This lapse in judgement was due to nothing more than some sort of brain-cramp. Had I had any sense, I would have made sure to get this disc, Volume 1, right after I bought Volume 2. If you have Volume 2 then this cd is more of the same, just different.
