In this djembé solo Famoudou Konaté showed a way of playing a double role (roulement) in phrases 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8; It’s a very difficult technique. Of course you can replace the double role by single ones, but remind that the placing of the hands changes after that.
The number of times to play the solo phrases is only a suggestion. The solo-player is free to experiment with own creativity.
