Mokhtar's Moroccan/Senegalese heritage, mixed with the jazz and Afro-fusion atmosphere of Paris, has created one of the most exciting drummers of our time. This book takes the student through several rhythms from all over the continent of Africa. Mokhtar breaks each rhythm down into movements, or exercises, that help the student develop the coordination and time feel necessary to play the various patterns that offer multiple permutations of these rhythms.

Roots rhythms are made fresh, challenging and fun! Talk about coming full circle - by embracing the past, Mokhtar points us in the direction of the drumset's future!
