Great App for African Rhythms

This is a great app for listening to different African rhythms. It includes tons of rhythms and some variations. All the parts can be individually turned on or off. You can change the speed and whether to emphasize the lead part, play all parts equally, or play parts on different sides (left and right). This is a excellent app for learning and practicing African rhythms and their various parts. I highly recommend it!

This app was more than I expected. I'm a beginner and I loved how you are given the opportunity to take a fast paced and complex rhythm and single out different drums to hear the simpler patterns to use for practice.
