ALPHA: At the very beginning
RHYTHM ROOTS: Every trend of sound has a pattern - Sound is all around us - You will hear the patterns only if you are really listening...It's the Rhythm Roots
Music and dance is at the root of many cultures around the world. By studying and playing traditional musical instruments from other cultures, one can develop an understanding of their history and traditions, ultimately leading to a better understanding of who they are.
In Guinea (West Africa), traditional values of our people have been transmitted through percussion rhythms, music, and dances for over a millenia..
At  "Alpha Rhythm Roots", our  dream  is  to bring  the  music, dance, traditions, and culture  of  our country, Guinea, to Canada and the world.

You will find the following resources on our web site pages:
Pictures of numerous musical instruments (multiple views) and detailed history, traditional instrument tuning and care, recommended Djembe tutorial books, advice for purchasing a quality authentic Djembe, Guinean percussion orchestra playing basics, Guinean rhythms and their meaning, informative blog articles, and more...

The founder of "Alpha Rhythm Roots", Alpha, is from Guinea, West Africa.
