Babatunde – “African Drum Performance”

It’s Sunday, and it’s time to relax and energize yourself.

Babatunde Olatunji was a virtuoso of West African percussion. His 1959 album “Drums of Passion” was a worldwide smash hit. He received a Grammy Award in 1991 for his collaboration with Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart on their Planet Drum album. He was also the founder of the Voices of Africa foundation.

Listen to this music and just move, for me it is impossible to stay still, whether we are drumming, dancing or just listening, we cannot escape being affected by the pulsating rhythm. African percussion has an amazing effect to the body, drum rhythms affect us physically and emotionally.
