Djembe Challenge #2

Welcome to Day 2 of the Djembe Challenge!

Today, Weedie shows you another famous djembe pattern which is also commonly known as the "passport".

Some people remember this pattern by saying the phrase "Aw ni Sógóma" (which means good morning in the Bambara language... the word syllables match the drum notes of the pattern).

In this lesson, Weedie shows you how the "passport" pattern is played for the rhythm Lamban. In the video , he demos it "leading left". In other words he plays the pattern as you would typically play it as a left hander.

Here is the pattern written out for you (left-handed version):

If you are right handed, you can also play the same way as Weedie in the video, if you like, as a way to build your ambidexterity. Otherwise you can play it right handed.

Here is the pattern written out for you (right-handed version):
