Conga and Djembe have become well-known instruments. More and more people use percussions to find acces to new and different areas of life. Jürgen Hentze learned the percussions from numerous travels to Africa by native musicians and put his experiences into this school. After a short introduction about the instruments (origin, construction) follows a chapter about the handling of the instruments. Numerous pictures help to visualise the instructions. After that the general principles of the practices is described. The theoretic part closes with a conclusion of the notation. In the following exercises straight and odd rythms are practised. The third part of this issue eventually presents 10 different styles of dances, split in base and solo tunes. At the same time new forms are considered, which interestingly combine tradition and modern jazz. There is play-along CD put in this edition, which offers multiple ways of practicing. Due to the stereo recording individual tunes can be tuned on and off, solo and base tunes can be heard seperately and the arrangements can be played in various combination.
