Kalani teaches a special rhythm used in Afro-Cuban music. It’s called the Afro-Cuban 12/8 bell pattern and it might pose a challenge for you if you’re not at least a little experienced in drumming and work music.

This episode of WORLD DRUM CLUB features two lessons from the WDC YouTube Channel:
- How to Choose a Djembe – You discover what to look for in a profession djembe. I talk about how to find the perfect djembe that will serve your drumming needs and help you to sound as good as possible for years to come.
- Marco: Three rhythms for djembe. I play three different rhythms for djembe from the popular book and DVD, West African Drum and Dance – A Yanked-Macrou Celebration. These djembe patterns are in 4/4 and will work with just about any world music groove. Learn the djembe, then move on and learn the dundun patterns to complete the ensemble.

This is the show about change! We changed the name from Kalani LIVE to the WORLD DRUM CLUB podcast.
We’re excited to bring our listeners more music, rhythms, and world drumming via the podcast – and we’re also happy to be tied into the World Drum Club YouTube channel. Our WDC members are growing all the time and we’re producing more member-only content for our supporters at http://patreon.com/kalani.
About the podcast:
World Drum Club Podcast provides music education for people who want to learn more about world drumming and world music. We demonstrate sounds, techniques, rhythms, and music from West Africa, Brazil, the Caribbean and beyond. World Drumming is very popular in Music Education, Music Therapy, and Recreational Music Making settings. The WDC Podcast helps drummers, educators, therapists, and facilitators create more musical experiences for their students, clients, and participants. The World Drum Club podcast is produced in association with the World Drum Club YouTube Channel, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoHRTcC-DTYaHdIbErwyDxQ, and the World Drum Club Members site at http://patreon.com/kalani.
Since we launched WORLD DRUM CLUB earlier this year, the responses has been amazing. The YouTube Channel has a steady stream of new subscribers and our Patreon Members are growing. (Thank you Members!)
Since the Kalani LIVE podcast covers much of the content from WORLD DRUM CLUB, we decided to merge them into the new WORLD DRUM CLUB podcast. If you’re a Kalani LIVE subscriber, you don’t have to do anything. The feed can your subscription will stay the same.
What listeners see, is the WORLD DRUM CLUB logo and title, rather than Kalani LIVE.
We’re excited about this change and look forward to bringing more world drumming and music education resources to music teachers and drumming enthusiasts all over the world.

There are rhythms that appear throughout the world, in different countries and styles of music. Learning how to recognize and reproduce these rhythms is something that percussionists do as part of their craft. Playing rhythms and music requires that we learn how to create grooves, and that requires that we tune in to micro-timing and the feel of the music. Even playing the shaker can be a deeply musical act. Learn how to get started and make progress in this episode. Kalani also talks about the Therapeutic Drumming Course and World Drum Club at YouTube and Patreon. <P>
