Djembe Challenge #7
Yes! You made it!! Day 7 of the Djembe Challenge!
Today, Weedie brings everything back to the beginning by showing the second djembe accompaniment for Mendiani. And he has a funny spoken phrase to help you remember the pattern.

In your lesson, Weedie explains how to loop the pattern properly.
These two parts for Mendiani are also found in many other traditional West African (Mande region) rhythm
