    Default Olatunji

    Olatunji (Babatunde Olatunji) was born in Africa in Nigeria. He came to America in 1950 and started making albums in 1959 starting with his famous album "Drums of Passion". He, along with Art Blakey, brought African music to America. He played with John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, Horace Silver, Quincy Jones, Pee Wee Ellis, Stevie Wonder, Randy Weston, Max Roach, Abbey Lincoln, Carlos Santana, and others. (Yes, jazz, soul, R&B, rock n' roll come from the blues which comes from African people, but that is not "African" music per se. This is African music and drumming.

    Love African drumming and rhythms! It's hypnotic. I could listen to it all day.

    Everyone loves FREE... like this free drum forum. But like your car and even your drums, they require upkeep and maintenance and that requires money.

    Will you consider Shopping at Drum Bum to help support this forum?

    Or make a donation here.

    I know from working with Drum Bum through the years, that this forum is costly to run. It requires server fees, hosting, ongoing moderation, advertising, software upgrades, security certificates and IT work when it breaks. All in addition to the expenses that come from running a business. These costs are offset (hopefully) by members that click through to Drum Bum to make a purchase now and then, if not make a contribution to help keep it running.

    On behalf of Drum Bum, thank you for your consideration.
