This rhythm is taken from the African Drum Rhythms Practice CD 2. It is a perfect rhythm to start with for beginners. It has been used a lot in beginners´ classes by my drum teacher friend Ulf Weigel, who learned the rhythm from Sten Kallman, who brought it from Haiti, along with a lot of other music that has spread all over Sweden.
