tambours du bénin
Tambours du Bénin is an annual training course on the rediscovery, analysis, and re-enactment of traditional rhythms and songs for young Beninese percussionists
Tambours du Benin is a traditional music and dance group that offers a journey into the world of traditional Beninese rhythms and songs. The sophisticated polyrhythm of the accompanying instruments and voices is amplified by the power of the solo instruments that express themselves in unison.
