Splice Originals Mandinka Percussion from Guinea w Wula Drums WAV
This is the first of two packs created in collaboration with the Wula Drum Ensemble of the Wula Drum Company, the industry leader in high-quality West African percussion manufacturing. All of the percussive instruments played were made in Guinea. This pack features the kirin, kongoma, two sizes of the dundun (the sangban and kenkeni), and solo and accompaniment djembe, as well as bass djembe. These instruments were used to build traditional celebratory rhythms from the Mandinka people, a West African ethnic group within the larger linguistic family of the Mandé peoples.
Mandinka communities have been fairly autonomous and self-ruled, being led by a chief and group of elders with an oral society where mythologies, history, and knowledge are verbally transmitted from one generation to next. Mandinkas continue a long oral history tradition through stories, songs, and proverbs passed down and communicated through music, predominately with drumming and percussion.
This pack features stunning rhythms meant for dance, movement, and celebration used during weddings, parties, and social gatherings. We hope you use these sounds to add some joyous energy to your productions.
