A Recipe for Improving Technique,
Dexterity, and Endurance
By John Currey
Today there is a scarcity in scope and breadth of practice materials specifically addressing fundamental technique development within the body of published works available for the djembe. In direct response to this void within the core of djembe resources, Cooking with the Djembe: a Recipe for Improving Technique, Dexterity, and Endurance has been designed as a companion text to supplement the variety of treatises and methods offering a wealth of knowledge, information, and traditional vocabulary splendidly covering many aspects of the history, tradition, care, and performance practice of the djembe.
The inspiration for Cooking with the Djembe: a Recipe for Improving Technique, Dexterity, and Endurance comes from one of the all-time great texts on technique development in the field of percussion: Stick Control for the Snare Drummer, by George Lawrence Stone.
With more than 85 pages of exercises covering a variety of time signatures and subdivisions, Cooking with the Djembe is the codification of an abundance of well organized and enjoyable material specifically designed to explore in-depth the development and perfection of the art of sound production on the djembe. In short, "hand control for the djembe drummer."
