FOLI (there is no movement without rhythm) original version by Thomas Roebers and Floris Leeuwenberg – YouTube

Some great drumming and great found sounds. This video performance of djembe rhythm and dance feels familiar, like an authentic performer tinkering with musical tradition and modern technology at the same time. This video loves the music, portraying it in all its complexity while making it abundantly clear that the complexity long pre-dates the modern focus on technology.
