Les Drummers of Burundi: Live at Real World

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Adam Greenberg
The Drummers of Burundi, part of a centuries-old tradition from the agricultural African country in the midst of assimilating itself into the greater Western market, have undertaken one album on the Real World label known primarily for bringing Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan to Western audiences, via the WOMAD concert festivals. The album consists of only one track, around a half hour long. This is deceiving, as there are actually 41 specific rhythms that the drummers put out. The significance of the different rhythms is varied, with some being traditional works of honor to elders, songs of peace, and the like, but with many or most, as they're also trying to sell albums in the ...
