Les Maitres-Tambours Du Burundi – “Les Maitres-Tambours Du Burundi” – [Arion]

aarbor   2/23/2022   CD, International

The Drum Masters of Burundi, the Batimbo-s, all come from the Batutsi ethnic group. Their job is to make, beat and keep the drums. The drums are kept in their own enclosure or “drum palace”. The drums are carved from a rare wood, and are thought to have shoulders, a breast, waist and hips. The drums are taken to the royal court each year for the festival of Muganuro. There are 5 tracks on this CD: 3 short ones and then 2 longer ones. It’s all drumming. AArbor
