Leon HOU - Dunun Player from Shenzhen

Before 2008 I played drums and ended up being part of a punk band. In March 2008 our singer took me to a park. Some people were playing djembe there. I liked it very much and, at the beginning, we just organized drum circles then later, we started to play traditional Mandingo music.

Coordination VS Independence

Weedie BRAIMAH on dununs
I believe choice of words can do a lot to clarify what a student should look for. That's why I think educational material talking about "independence" is bringing unnecessary confusion or even worse: unreachable expectations. Independence is a myth that we, musicians, try to make the listener believe in. Students don't need this. Independence is a state of no relationship between different entities. On the contrary coordination is the ability to execute different actions linked by a specific goal. We have only one brain so it's somehow more limited than two separate parts coordinating themselves but there are some tricks that allow the musician to play several parts at once giving the illusion of independence.

This is what Weedie BRAIMAH does on dununs in the above video.
