Drumming in the Streets – Tribal Rhythms Recorded in West Cork



This drumming CD has been recorded live in the streets of Bantry, Skibbereen and Clonakilty in West Cork, Ireland during several festivals. It captures the real tribal feel of music recorded outdoors. Percussionist Thomas Wiegandt, joined by various local and international musicians, plays a range of both lively and meditative rhythms with influences from African, native American, Irish and Asian musical traditions. The musical instruments played are congas, the African djembe drum, djundjun bass drums, a variety of bells and shakers, didgeridoo and sun-shin (a Chinese type of banjo). This CD also features some unique individual voices. The musicians involved are Ailin Becker, Dearbhail Connon, Doctor Dink, Toby Eaton, Frank Germuth, Ato Mariano, and Urs Wenk. The CD has 20 tracks with a total playing time of 76:28

Feedback: “It sounds vibrant and has a real edge to it.”
(Dearbhail Connon, film maker West Cork)
