    This three-compact disc collection offers a somewhat limited survey of the many drum traditions present in Africa. What is here is excellent, ranging from solo pieces to full drum or balafon ensembles (with vocals only on a few), but a more complete picture could only be achieved with a much larger set. That being said, this is a decent introduction to the styles of African drumming from these countries, but a true beginner might be better served by a single-disc collection. ~ Sean Westergaard
