These parts for Mandiani are all taken from African Drum Rhythms Practice CD 9 (linked above), except the two last parts - which are common variations that you may find much easier to play than the ones from the CD. Pay special attation to how the last two djembe parts interact with the different bass and bell part variations. This is indeed good practice!
