13 Feb Update Awa Dabole
On my studytrip in 2017 it became clear to me that Awa Dabole, as I had originally learned in Mali from Lamini Balani, does have a little simple accompaniment pattern. Youssouf called our A-pattern rather straightforward and there was some more dimension in this pattern. Then he taught us a new pattern. It takes some getting used to and this pattern you play not just at the same speed with which you could play the piece until then. But definitely worth starting and gradually becoming familiar. Do you have questions or comments; put them in this blog.
Adjustments at a glance:
